Addendum (3/18/2019 - 10:22 am). In addition to being trimmed, the cards have also been skinned and are not their original thickness.

This hard-bound 19th century scrapbook is typical for the period and includescolorful non-sport trade cards, pictures, and the like, with the exception of a single page featuring 17 N172 Old Judge tobacco cards. The players represented in the album are Hoss Radbourn (377-1; obscene gesture), Jim O'Rourke (358-3), Dan Brouthers (43-1), John Clarkson (78-4), Billy Sunday (446-5), Emil Geiss (182-6), Ned Williamson (502-5), "Tug" Arundel (13-3), "Black Jack" Burdock (twice; 53-4 and 53-5), Jim McCormick (306-9), Jimmy Ryan (396-6), Charley Bassett (22-1), "Tido" Daly (114-4), Thomas Burns (59-2), Marty Sullivan (444-3), and one other (name cut off). All the cards have been trimmed and are glued to the album page. The page is toned and displays light foxing, with foxing also affecting a few of the cards. The album (12.5 x 15 inches) displays moderate-to-heavy wear, with all of the pages toned. Many of the pages also display small tears and chips. In Good to Very Good condition overall. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
