    Circa 1900 Bachrach & Bro. Baltimore Orioles Postcard SGC 40 VG 3. John Esch Collection. This fine postcard, issued by Bachrach & Bro. of Baltimore, c. 1905, depicts one of the most legendary teams in baseball history- the Orioles of the 1890s. This squad helped to bring the sport into the twentieth century by introducing numerous strategies and plays, as well as serving as a classroom for three of the best managers of the Deadball Era- John McGraw, Hughie Jennings, and Wilbert Robinson. The 1894 crew depicted on the postcard won the National League title with a stellar 89-39 record. Six future Hall of Famers starred on the team: McGraw, Jennings, Robinson, Dan Brouthers, Wee Willie Keeler, and Joe Kelley, managed by Ned Hanlon, who is also enshrined in Cooperstown. Graded SGC 40 VG 3 unused as mail correspondence.
