Only a handful of 19th Century images exist picturing key African American ballplayers. This one has to rank near the top of the list, 1894 Findlay team cabinet. Grant "Home Run" Johnson appears seated in the middle row on the far left and Bud Fowler appears seated in the middle row, far right.

There are not many original 19th century baseball related photographs from Japan. This photo taken in 1891 includes Japanese Hall of Famer Kanoe Chuma (3rd from right), the man who in 1894 coined the term Yakyu, meaning baseball in Japanese.

That's a great cabinet card Phil. I actually picked up that cabinet you have back in 2004 on ebay for $30. Man did ebay have some bargains back in the early days. I ended up flipping it to somebody else on Net54.

Wow. you're killing me, Rob. Let's just say that adding a couple of zeros to what you paid wouldn't even come close to what it cost me......

1866 cabinet featuring the Brooklyn Excelsiors visiting the Washington Nationals. Shown in the from row is Henry Chadwick who accompanied Brooklyn on their tour. Also shown is Arthur Gorman, the Nationals President, who later became a senator from Maryland and is featured in the 1888 Duke Presidential Possibilities set.
