Early Baseball Ephemera] Humorous Mid-Nineteenth Century Valentine "Base Baller"
Fisher & Denison, New York and Baltimore - Very scarce humorous Valentine, circa 1850s to 1860s, with a baseball theme. With a hand-colored baseball player, and a caption with the verse: "Greatest of muffo with butter fingers,/ Defeat around you always lingers,/ 'Tis with pity I hear the shouts,/ That greet your constantly recurring out./ Dear Sir, you missed calling/ When you sought money in Base Balling." The vinegar Valentine is framed and matted. The broadside itself is 22 by 15.5 cm, and the frame, 37 by 29 cm. The Valentine has minor soiling and creases, now flattened. The frame and mat are pristine.
