Default Baseball poster 1895 Calvert Litho Detroit

Looking for some more information on a baseball poster from 1895 Calvert Litho from Detroit. I found one similar in content but different color uniforms and the size is different. Anyone know more about this poster? The poster measures 33" x 40"

I think these posters were able to be customized by the customer. This one was marketed as "Base Ball Poster No. 281".

Information from the Library of Congress.

Wow that is beautiful! Have you looked at it under magnification to confirm it's a chromolithograph and how thick is the paper stock?

The poster was auctioned in London so I was not able to examine it. It sold for about 120$ USD
