Default 1860 Lady Baseballer Ambrotype

Hi Deb,

To my knowledge, this is the earliest woman baseball image known. It is an ambrotype of an anonymous woman in a fancy dress holding a bat and ball from circa 1860.

I no longer own this image but I could get in touch with the new owner for you if desired.

Regards

Jason

Default The Methodist/Episcopal church team

I sure wish I understood how this forum works! Would you believe I just now found this response you made to my thread back in Nov 09? Is there some sort of setting I need to make so that I get e-mail advisories when people post to a thread I've started? I do get notices when people respond to responses I've made to other threads or to private messages but I didn't know anyone had responded to my thread. Also, I don't understand how to "subscribe" to threads. Can you explain that?

The photos you sent of the Methodist/Episcopal church team are wonderful! I expect I will use one of them because it represents another type of team I hadn't even considered previously--church teams. Can you tell me anything about the photos? Where did you get them? Are there any names associated with them?

Default Police Gazette illustration

Sorry for my late delay in responding to this post, Doug. I still haven't gotten the hang of how to find responses to my posts. Great image of the female baseball players in the N.P.G. I hadn't seen it before.

Rare pre-bloomer 1870s tintype of a female player for the "LABBC". When you zoom in, you can see she is holding what appears to be an acorn or ball-knob bat and an early "belt-style" ball...

Deb, I picked up the Methodist team postcards at a local auction years ago...I've since sold them, but I'm pretty sure I remember who I sold them to...they did have names written on the back of one of the cards. If you'd like I can contact the new owner to see if he still has them.

That would be great if it's not too much trouble. Getting the names might allow me to find out something about the players from census information or city directories. Sometimes I'm even able to track down living relatives of the players. I found the grandniece of Myrtle Rowe, the grandnephew of Alta Wiess and the grandnieces and grandnepher of Ruth Egan. Player names are a big help in my research.

Awesome image! Does it happen to say anything on the back or have a date on it?
