Posted By: <b>XanaduNow</b><p>A recent pickup that I thought others might enjoy.<br /><br />Mace was in New York from 1869-1871 and again in 1876. William Howell Studios moved from Broadway in 1878. Based on that I place this Mace card between 1869-1876.<br /><br /><img src="http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m284/XanaduNow/1869-1876JemMacecab.jpg"><br /><br />Arthur

Posted By: <b>davidcycleback</b><p>I'm unfamiliar with the boxer or studio history, but the style and color of mount and small, conservative text at bottom is consistent with the era you quote. Without your text, I would call it a "typical 1870s style cabinet."

Posted By: <b>Jimmy</b><p>very nice early photo, Mace was a top fighter of his time and early items are hard to find. Most of the time you see just Harper Weekly prints of fights from the 1870s and 1880s, but not cabinet cards<br /><br />Take Care<br /><br />Jimmy
