    1899 Jouett Meekin Boston Beaneaters Large Cabinet Photograph. Magnificent cabinet photograph dates from the blink of an eye when Meekin represented the Boston Beaneaters, snapped at some time between his August 11, 1899 arrival from the New York Giants and his March 13, 1900 release. Lest you infer from this brief courtship that Meekin was a slouch, refer to the record books, which will dispel any such notion. Meekin posted a record of thirty-three and nine with the 1894 Giants, topping the National League in winning percentage, and recorded over 150 victories during his ten season career. His image is expertly captured by the famed Boston studio of Elmer Chickering, whose golden stamping underlines the sepia portrait. Some dampstaining at the edges causes little distraction, and mild edge and corner wear is the only other condition issue of note, quite remarkable for a cabinet of such prodigious size (8x10"). A splendid and evocative memento of the turn-of-the-century game.
