    1897 Delegates to the Schedule Meeting of the NL & AA of Baseball Clubs Imperial Photograph. Massive image captures the top executives in professional baseball near the close of the nineteenth century, a flawlessly rendered portrait featuring some of the game's most influential and essential pioneers. The title of the image at the bottom of the 16x20" shot reads, "Delegates to the Schedule Meeting of the National League and American Association of Base Ball Clubs, Held at the Hotel Rennert, Baltimore, February 25th-27th, 1897." Each well-dressed gentleman is identified just above this text, among them Giants owner John Brush, sporting goods mogul and Phillies owner A.J. Reach, Hall of Fame manager Ned Hanlon, active National League president N.E. Young and his successor Henry Pulliam, whose reign would end in 1909 with his suicide. The image remains in marvelous condition with only light toning to suggest its advanced age, and is housed in its original mat, completing the dimensions at 20x24".
