F.C. Schmelz presents the Star Bloomer Base Ball Club with what appears to be their dedicated brass marching band, in full uniforms as is the base ball team, on an interesting post card with almost two dozen subjects depicted. The right end is ragged and creasing essentially encircles the card in the borders, while the sepia image remains largely unaffected. Manufactured by Cross Printing of Chicago, the reverse was never used and has some staining and a little foxing.
