Pair of pages from Harper's Weekly, each featuring baseball team woodcut images.  Collection includes: 1) September 12, 1874: Includes team image of the Maple Leaf Base-Ball Club of Guelph, Ontario, Canada.  Strong image quality, though page does exhibit wear, particularly in the form of edge tears at all four sides.  2) October 18, 1883: Includes team image of the Boston Base-Ball Club, in street clothes.  GOOD condition with some water staining at the top and bottom edges, an irregular trim at the left edge and some minor wear elsewhere.  Two woodcuts total.
