    1888 New York Giants Original Team Photograph by Joseph Hall. Magnificent photograph of the team that won the first World Championship in the history of a franchise entering its 134th season is the work of renowned Brooklyn-based photographer Joseph Hall, who shot every team that year (though the Pittsburgh and Philadelphia examples have never surfaced). This is a smaller version (3.75x5.75") of the image, executed on thin photographic stock that leads us to believe it was destined to become a cabinet photo, but was never affixed to the backing. Remarkably, the photo presents in close to NRMT condition, though close inspection will reveal faint wrinkles throughout. Hall's title and studio mark appears in faint white text in the foreground.
