I picked this cabinet for a song a couple of weeks ago. The seller had it listed as a c1900 image. I think he may have had this dated 20 years to late. What do you all think?

Actually, meant to say late-1880s.

Agreed. Outstanding photo. Bib front jerseys an early mask and two nice bats. As always, I'll ask the question...What did you pay for it? :D

Wow, great photo...I would bet that's mid to late 1880's...Bib front jerseys - ring bats....Nice score.

Hey Mike,

This was a bargain. Not only is the cabinet older than the seller thought but it is larger than a normal cabinet card, somewhere between a standard cabinet and an Imperial cabinet. I ended up winning this for $93 and change. This seller believes this cabinet is from the Boston area. Anyone know of teams that started with an H in the Boston area?

Well there is Harvard, but this doesn't look like a college team.

Hello slidekellyslide, You maybe right or wrong, as looking at the players they look a bit older then college level BUT!!!, they don't look to old either, there are definitely a few that look young enough to be in college. Don't let the thick mustache fool you remember that was the style of the time. I knew a guy who had a full beard in Junior High School. How crazy is that?
