Wonderful 2 1/4" x 3 7/8" tintype featuring a trio of unidentified young teammates wearing c.1880's uniforms, each sporting ribbons attached to a star on their chest. Both players on the outside are brandishing long bats and the gentleman in the middle is casually showing off a baseball. Minor wear is present to the corners and edges but does not impact the overall quality of the image. A terrific example of 19th-century photography with ballplayers as the subject matter.
