NOTE: this description has been modified from the printed catalog to reflect that it wasn't used in the production process of the cabinet, but is still a period piece from the "pre-war" time frame.

Unique 1889 Oakland Colonels glass negative of the Abell & Priest cabinet. This murky approximately 4x5 glass artifact showcases vignettes of the key players for the California League squad including a young George Stallings (1914 Miracle Braves manager) and Tip O’Neill. Identifying notations are placed vertically along the left edge while period fountain pen writing is noticeable on the reverse. The perimeter is absent of obtrusive wear or contusions while expected and limited surface imperfections are consistent with period handling.
