    Description

    1880's Baseball Player Cabinet Photograph. Collectors of nineteenth century baseball photography are certain to marvel at this delightful studio portrait of a stout young enthusiast of our National Game. The image bristles with charming period detail, from the striped cap and necktie, to the collared jersey and wide-belted trousers, to the ring bat on which the ballplayer gently leans. The word "Southaven" arcs across the man's chest, relating to a town not far from the Bangor, Michigan studios of Northup, which is advertised at the bottom margin. While the tiniest speckling of foxing appears at the borders and again on the verso, the photographic image itself remains unchanged from its production twelve decades or so ago. Overall dimension are 4.25x6.5".
