    Description

    1896 Reach Official Base Ball Guide Advertising Sign. Certainly one of the most attractive and appealing advertising pieces commemorating the 19th century game we've encountered during our years at Heritage, and one of the best preserved to boot. All of the period details of the dapper gentleman at center evokes that rough-and-tumble age of our National Pastime, from the striped jersey to the wide-handled bat to the wonderful handlebar mustache. A few stray spots of age toning and a barely visible horizontal center fold represent the entirety of condition caveats, and absolute miracle of survival that's the first we've ever seen. Print measures 12x18" and is framed to a final 15x21".
