Description:
1897 Harvard University Baseball Team Imperial Cabinet Photograph. The baseball team of the Harvard class of 1898 celebrates its victory over historic rival Yale with a photograph to commemorate the occasion. The magnificent sepia image finds the Harvard nine and their manager posing with a sign recounting the seven to four victory, with the details repeated in a vintage handwritten notation "Har.-98 - 7 - Yale-98-4. May 21, 1897" on the photographic matting. Here we find a degree of dampstaining, but it must be stressed that the image itself presents perfectly. The Pach's Brothers studios photo measures 10x13" in size, with the period frame extending the final dimensions to 18x22".

What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
