Default Civil War Baseball Player Cards

Any baseball cards exist of baseball players who also were involved in the Civil War ?

Frank Bancroft is one. He was a manager only but he had at least one card, a T204 Ramly.

Love that cabinet Jay, neat experiment in baseball uniform history.

Deacon White was the oldest player in the League when his OJ card was issued in 1888, he was 17 years old at the close of the Civil War but did not serve. By the time baseball card production exploded in the late 1880s the Civil War Vets were aging well beyond their prime but many of those circa 1887-1889 players had fathers, uncles, etc. who did serve.

Al Barker played in one major league game in 1871. Scott Hastings had a longer career from 1871-1877. Both were Civil War veterans and appear on this 1870 Rockford Forest City's cdv.
