From the very origin of professional baseball, this July 24, 1869 Harper’s Weekly features a wood-carved illustration of an oversized baseball bat being presented to the Cincinnati Red Stockings. Displayed within a Lucite holder of 14x18, the crisp page is among the earliest published accounts of our National Pastime. The “trophy” bat is shown resting on easels, with owner “H. WRIGHT” among the stamped identifiers.
