Default Tintype Imaging Process

I am hoping that some of you much more well versed on images might be able to answer a question for me...

Using the process by which tintype photographs were/are created, would an image that was taken of another image come out as reversed?

My understanding was that the tintype process rendered a reverse image of the subject being photographed. By that rationale...and this is why I'm asking...would a tintype photo taken of another tintype result in a reverse depiction of the original image?

In case anyone wants to know why it is I'm asking, I'm trying to get more comfortable with an image I recently saw of ball players that is the reverse of a well known example of the exact same photo.

So, photo guys...post away!

A tintype is a reversed, mirror image, so I suppose a tintype of a tintype would create and un-reversed, original image, right?

Tintypes have the images reversed left to right. A tintype of a tintype would have the image correct. Same with daguerreotypes.

As far as a regular paper photographs go, if you flip the negative the image will come out reverse and you will occasionally find such photos. This is how those 'reverse negative' baseball card errors came about.
