This one was a truly RARE find.
The late 1860s carte de visite shows two Base Ball players in uniform-- one holds a bat and the other holds a ball.
The back has a full period ink identification of both players. I wasn't able to uncover any additional information on the players.
Online research has identified the team as the Allentown Stars and dates from 1866 or 1867!
