Description

Presented is a circa-1887 Detroit Wolverines baseball currency trade card. This fragile piece of ephemera measures 7 x 3-1/4 and reveals substantial edge fraying, creasing and moderate soiling. The obverse displays manager Watkins and Hall of Fame batsman Sam Thompson. The Morgan Brothers advertisement is clean and unobstructed. The reverse exhibits a composite team woodcut with Brouthers, Dunlap, Hanlon and Thompson being the chief subjects. The National League Wolverines were the champions of baseball during the 1887 campaign, making this advertising bill as a prime nineteenth-century keepsake.
