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.
