Default 1866 Harper's Woodcut Baseball Team Photo Value?

Hey all. Never had one of these and was wondering if anyone knows what the value would be. 1866 Harper's Weekly page with very early baseball teams. My question is: is it rare and how much is it worth? The little text box looks to have been cut from another page in the paper and is separate from the photo page.
Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Tony

PS - It is for sale if anyone wants to make an offer.

Guesstimate would be 75-125. I used to collect these and prices are sometimes hit and miss. Some Collectors like them in the old time frames while others like them raw where it's easy to store.

Not rare but one of the earlier Harper's and excellent display piece. In general, it's more valuable as a full publication but in this case difference is minimal. Perhaps around $75 but to Jay's point, it's hit or miss. I've seen this one go for under $50 and sometimes over $100.

Default Harper's woodcut

Tony,

I had one vet similar, if not identical that sold in the $100 range a few years back... What's neat about this one is that Lippmann pike (professional baseballs first Jewish superstar)

Recently on Ebay, an unframed page sold for an initial bid of $65 and a full issue of the magazine went for $58.

Thanks for all the info guys. At least I now know what the range is. Weird that the page sold for more than the whole paper.

Other than Ebay, Collectible Classics and Hunt Auctions sell these every year. They might be good to do a search in the history.
