    1888 New York Giants Team Cabinet Photograph--An Extraordinary Treasure. If there is a finer 19th century team photograph in the hobby, we haven't seen it, as this relic earns near-perfect marks by every metric of evaluation. The 1888 Giants served as the first World Championship team in a franchise history that enters its 134th season in 2016. The playing roster, packed to the gills with future Hall of Famers, supplies us with a look at iconic figures like Tim Keefe, Roger Connor, John Ward, Buck Ewing, Jim O'Rourke, Mickey Welsh and borderline Hall of Famer George "Piano Legs" Gore.

    And, finally, we come to an assessment of condition, which leaves us with little more to do than spout superlatives, as the faintest hints of edge wear is all that suggests nearly thirteen decades of existence. Dimensions are 8x10", but the appeal to the cultured 19th century baseball collector is clearly immeasurable.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
