1874 cabinet card of Wes Fisler of the Philadelphia Athletics credited with scoring the first run in MLB history.

Top of the card has "Ret(urn) to Mr Murnane". Murnane was his teammate and later a sportswriter. This photo, as a woodcut, was featured in the July 25th, 1874 Harper's Weekly magazine along with 8 of his teammates. I'm suspecting this note may be associated with that publication.

A fine result from a "creative" trade with Luke ..... :)

I always wanted a tougher 460 only EPDG of Gandil. Although I do not seek out double names .... I have to say it's kind of way cool ..... :cool:

Dessau has been on the top of my want list for a loooooong time .... :o ... He's just so tough with any mid-tier back ..... ;)

Never noticed that the text on the back of Joe Wood's Cracker Jack referred to him as "Joseph". Surprised they would propagate that erroneous appellation on the flip. His given name was Howard. Joe was his childhood nickname. Never was Joseph. Am probably in the minority of folks who give a hoot. Very nice card anyway.

Very happy to bring Master Melvin home from the show this weekend. I really like this issue (#127) for the scowling portrait of a guy who from all accounts was a "nice guy."

Also, most of the time I like the 33's better with the banner at the bottom but I think this card looks better without.

Ryan, even though it's rarer, the street clothes version doesn't hold a candle to the aesthetic pleasure that his uniform version provides.

Nice additions fellas. I got bumped on a few items in HA the day before and in another auction as well. Prices on blue-chip stuff is definetly not cheap anymore.
I went for the Orcaja Dimaggio and the Ruth goudey SGC2 (#144)
One positive thing is- no money spent and drool on my keyboard.

M.G. IRVINE, RICHMOND (VIRGINIA LEAGUE) T210-2.

Funky fat border on the Irvine T210. Not sure if it is faded or missing gloss or simply printed when the red ink was running low?

Perhaps my first pink border card!
