The Temple Cup Print

Actually, this painting is called "The Base Ball Game", and it was painted around1897. It depicts a game at the Polo Grounds in New York and many people believe it could be depicting the 1894 Temple Cup Series game between the Baltimore Orioles and the New York Giants. Whatever the case, it is one of the most beautiful baseball paintings I have ever seen. I just wanted to share it with any of you who haven't seen it before.

Enjoy the hobby all....
