    Description

    1870 Athletics BBC Vintage Photo. Offered is a second generation photographic print of an extremely rare CDV that featured the 1870 Athletics baseball Club. Image from this early period in baseball are quite rare and highly prized by collectors. The 1870 Athletics were a powerhouse in the pre-National Association era. The ten identified players including A. J. Reach of Reach & Spaulding fame (in the upper left), Malone, Fisler, Radcliff, J.D. McBride (in center), Pratt, Bechtel, Sensenderfer, Berry and Schaefer. This team would also take the championship of the newly formed National Association in 1871. The photographer is credited as Gihon (812 Arch Street) which is in Philadelphia. The 11-1/4" x 9-1/8" print has creasing, corner wear and tack holes at three corners, all of which only modestly affects the central oval image area. What looks like damage in the upper right is actually in the photo. The cost of an original would be well into the thousands and thousands of dollars so acquiring one is an impossibility for most. This is a nice alternative with great display quality.
