1898 Baseball - American Pastime
Digital Art - Mixed Media
Appears to be a Double Play in progress. Out at Third Base and outcome remains to be seen .....
Caught in mid-air, a Baseball base runner slides into second base as the throw is on its way from third base. The quilted pants, the Umpire and his whistle, the catcher's mit that looks more like a winter mitten . . . it's all here with incredible artistry and detail. You can almost hear the ROAR of the crowd. A wonderful look into the past at the early days of our game in 1898.
The restoration was challenging as the poster literally was separated into four pieces, folded up, and warped out of shape. I restored it to near published condition for baseball fans to continue to enjoy.
Based upon a chromolithograph originally created and published by the Strobridge Company [MAR 1898]
