    Circa 1890 Cleveland Professional Baseball Cabinet Photograph. Large and fantastic image pictures eleven ballplayers sporting period uniforms with the expanse of outfield grass and bleachers in the distance behind them. Noted experts have identified some of the players as Chief Zimmer (Cleveland Blues 1887-88, Cleveland Spiders 1889-99), Ed McKean (Cleveland Blues 1887-88, Cleveland Spiders 1889-98), and perhaps most notably Larry Twitchell, whose single season in Cleveland as a member of the 1890 Players League franchise the Cleveland Infants makes this one of the very few known images of a player from that league in uniform. The mounted photo measures just over 9x12" in size and presents very well despite a degree of wear that is largely contained to the outermost edges of the image, leaving the central focus in EX or better condition. It is gorgeously matted and framed to final dimensions of 14x17".
