    1888 Boston Beaneaters Baseball Fan. Fan-tastic 19th century relic captures the early game's pastoral majesty with vivid colors and detailed realism while sanitizing the fierce competitiveness of the day. Return to a time when stars like King Kelly, Cap Anson, Silver King, "Sliding" Billy Hamilton, and Cannonball Crane dominated the diamond, and ballclubs like the Boston Beaneaters, Brooklyn Bridegrooms, Louisville Colonels, and Philadelphia Quakers fought to the death. Including the wooden handle that supports it, fan measures a total of about 13" from top to bottom. Bottom border stamped "Copyright 1888 By The Bufford's Sons Lith. Co. Boston." Brilliant!
