OUR NATIONAL GAME 1887

Giclée reproductions of six Chromolithographs contained in a 19th century scrapbook.

During the latter half of the nineteenth century the compilation of scrapbooks was extremely popular and few homes in America could be found without a family scrapbook prominently displayed in the parlor. The pictorial title page depicted a standing baseball team surrounding a seated coach, surmounted by patriotic motifs and above a design of crossed bats and equipment. The other illustrations are skillfully rendered field level scenes of a Wild Pitch, Fly Ball, Foul Ball, a runner Caught between Bases, and Home Run — each with extremely interesting details of uniforms, equipment, positions, etc. This is a beautiful representation of late 19th Century lithography and baseball artwork, and makes for an outstanding display.

15” x 20” Reproduced on Hahnemule German Etching Paper or on artist canvas.
