Original tintype showing two baseball players, one holding a ball, both wearing full "Myrtle" uniforms.

3.5" x 2.5" tintype comes in its original 5" x 3" paper sleeve, with Chicago photographer William Neidhardt's studio imprint on the back cover. Also written there in period pen is, "Dad & Bill Sawusch".

I own several more unidentified pictures of the player on the right, so I believe it's most likely that Sawusch was on the left, "dad" not needing to be ID'd on this or the other images by the writer.

Tintype has one or two small abrasions, otherwise is in excellent antique condition with NO bends. Sleeve is in very good condition though the pieces are separated.
