Part of the long T209 Contentnea Photo Series that included players from three minor league circuits, this card captures Frank Morrissey during a brief stint with the 1910 Richmond Colts of the Virginia League. While the set is short on players who played in the majors, Morrissey bucked that trend as he pitched in six games in two seasons in the majors: 1901 Boston AL and 1902 Chicago NL. There are ten examples in both the PSA and SGC databases, with this SGC 3.5 the highest graded. Corner rounding and light corner stains are seen, with a nice image of Morrissey about to throw a warmup pitch.
