Description

    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.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $1,000 - up.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
