Fantastic image of three ballplayers posing in a studio in uniform with a bat and catcher's mask. Box shows some wear to the ornate surface but the clasp is still in working condition, and photo appears to be in fantastic condition. Contrary to popular belief tintypes were made up until the early 1900's so there's a possibility of a slightly later date on this but the studio posing looks similar to many other lat 1800's baseball images we have seen.
