The Boston Base Ball Club, 1888

Boston Base Ball Club

In this photo-etching by George H. Hastings titled, The Boston Base Ball Club, he combines photography and printmaking in a composite production collage, this unusual vintage image depicts the Boston Beaneaters playing in front of a full house at their South End grounds.

Led by the likes of "Old Hoss" Radbourn, "$10,000" King Kelly, "Black Jack" Burdock, and Billy Nash, the Beaneaters still finished the 1888 season a disapointing fifth.
