Description

    1882 New York Metropolitans Team Cabinet Photograph. Exceedingly rare early image pictures the team from the upstart American Association that would form the basis for the New York Giants of the National League, officially debuting the next year with the addition of a host of future Hall of Famers including Buck Ewing, Roger Connor and Mickey Welch. We thank the Library of Congress for the following identifications of the players pictured in this marvelous team shot of the "Metropolitan Baseball Nine 1882" at Sarony's studio near Manhattan's Union Square.

    Top row, left to right: Jack Lynch, Charlie Reipschlager, Tip O'Neill, Eddie Kennedy, John Clapp, John Doyle, Frank Hankinson, Steve Brady. Bottom row, left to right: Tom Mansell, Terry Larkin, Candy Nelson, Long John Reilly.

    A corner bend at upper left accounts for nearly the entirety of condition concerns, leaving the rest of the image to present at a borderline NRMT level. Certainly one of the most impressive 19th century team photos we have offered. Dimensions are 4.25x6.25".
