"International Base-Ball -- The Philadelphia Athletics"....

Item # 697971

July 25, 1874

HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, July 25, 1874  Although this issue includes many very nice & displayable prints, by far the most desirable would be the great full page captioned: "International Base-Ball -- The Philadelphia Athletics" which shows individual, full-figure illustrations of the baseball players in uniform, most with a bat or ball in hand. A very displayable item for any baseball collector.
The full ftpg. print is by the famed Frenzeny & Tavernier, captioned: "A Saturday Noon In A Southwestern Town" showing a typical Old West street scene.  Other prints within include a fullpg. Thomas Nast political cartoon: "Moses Junior Viewing the Promised Land From Mount Ruin."; and a halfpg: "The New York Normal College" & a smaller print of "Professor Thomas Hunter, President of the Normal College".
Sixteen pages, very nice condition.
