Default 1859 college baseball-plain dress

I have a photo album dated 1862 from Williams College. In this album are (5) individual photos of players (in plain dress) that played in the very first college baseball game played in 1859 between Williams College and Amherst.

I wondered if anyone would be interested. The photos are signed and provenance is available to document the authenticity. The game itself is well documented and easy to research.

I will wait to see what response is given but can post additional pictures upon request.

I also am not sure what price these become available at. I have been given broad range of value.

Thanks,

This new member did everything right and abided by my requests. I am a pushover for helping when folks do things the right way (per board rules). I had some long talks on the phone with him so figure maybe we can get him some additional thoughts on the main forum.

That looks like a picture of a page out of a book, not a photo album. It will be much more interesting when scans of the photos are posted.

Now you've got my interest.

Unfortunately, I would have to recommend that you consign them through one of the large auction houses - these are pretty special.

This is very nice. Consigning this would be a smart move.

Are those actual oval photographic portraits? Is the image pictured to the right of the book also a photograph? If these are actual photographs, I would be interested.

Although it is nice to have the images signed, I'm not sure great value is added. If the players were well known it would be a different story. Interesting item.
Please post additional pictures if possible.
