A picture depicting the genesis of a legendary career, this one-of-a-kind photo - technically a rookie card - shows future Hall of Fame outfielder Willie Keeler as a New York Giant neophyte. According to recent research, this is the only such copy known to exist as it originates from the 1892-93 J.U. Stead Studio Cabinets series. This is also his earliest known card. The front is EX-MT, featuring perfect image and contrast. A pinhole in the back does not come all the way through. There is extensive editor's writing on the back as this was used in a 1911 article on the old Baltimore Orioles.
