139 Years Old! Graded EX-MT+ 6.5 by PSA. This exquisite 1878 Huntley & Palmers Baseball trade card was published by an English firm based in both London and Reading. Issued as one of 12 sports in the series, the offered representation of our national pastime is undoubtedly the most desirable in the set and the highest of 36 graded from the issue. The intricately crafted illustration depicts a batter, catcher, pitcher and third baseman along with a pair of other players as bystanders. Additionally, the bronze framed antique exhibits only slight perimeter wear and vivid color details. The French text reverse advertising the 1878 World’s Fair in Paris is clean with crisp blue typeface.
