Keeler, McGraw, Robinson, Jennings and Kelley. Just a few of the Hall of Famers on the late 1890s Baltimore Orioles, who are showcased on this oversized team cabinet during their late 19th Century three-peat under manager Ned Hanlon. The National League O's were the originators of the "Baltimore Chop" and this 7.25x5" keepsake was created in the studios of renowned photojournalist Dave Bachrach. "THE CHAMPIONS OF 1894, '95 AND '96" is printed along the left side and there is a 5" crease near the top-center. As expected, there is some soiling and discoloration but that hardly diminishes its historic value, which is immeasurable for Baltimore collectors or 19th century baseball enthusiasts.
