This choice 1/8th plate tintype features a pitcher, catcher, batter and umpire with fans in the background. It's a pretty rare example of an outdoor baseball scene from this time period - the dawn of baseball. It is in EX condition and is a superb relic. A photographer could prepare, expose, develop and varnish a tintype plate and have it ready for the customer in a few minutes, bolstering their popularity. Outdoor scenes of this era are scarce. This is one of the best baseball tintypes we have seen.
