The Original Bloomer Girls Baseball Club get the royal hand tint treatment here on a striking postcard that was mailed in 1911.  The corners have all got multiple creases radiating into the neatline or beyond, mostly not reaching the photo.  Some red ink overspray is seen at the left on the image, with some blue ink at tope left. Addressed in pencil and postmarked. This card has often been offered by unscrupulous sellers claiming the figure at the bottom left is Hall of Famer Addie Joss, but we can gleefully report that the player is not Joss.
