This is a Harpers Weekly featuring Ivy League pitchers from 1893. my question is this. I have located this in black and white but this one is in color. Does that increase the value? And if so by how much?

The original is black and white. Any coloring would have been done after publication and by hand. The value would be individual collector preference, the ones I know preferring original, but, if done well, the color can be nice.(if done poorly, or inaccurately, the value would be substantially reduced) I believe a company still does these. It used to be you could get these on spec, and pay for them when sold, not sure what the current deal is, if any.
