11 1/2" square cloth handkerchief which unfolds to display baseball-related illustrations.  Ringed with a border of baseballs, each corner includes an illustrated ballplayer (batter, pitcher, catcher and umpire), with the interior image picturing an entire ballfields with a game in progress.  All the printing is blue, against a white background.  Visible discoloration and age-related staining is evident throughout.  Still, it is quite remarkable that a piece of this nature would have survived for more than a century.
