1894 TEMPLE CUP PRINT
An 1894 Temple Cup black and white print published by Burrsad - Vladon & Co. of Paris, London and New York. This print contains forty-four black and white oval portraits of the greatest baseball players and executives of the era arranged in two rows on the top and bottom of an illustration of a Temple Cup game by Hy Sandham of Boston. The 1894 Temple Cup series between the Baltimore Orioles and the New York Giants was the first of the series which were contested annually from 1894 through 1897, the equivalent of the modern World Series. The players and executives include Ward, Mills, Cy Young, Harry Wright, Von der Ale, Spalding, Charles Comiskey, Hugh Duffy, Wilbert Robinson, Ed Delahanty, Cap Anson, Roger Connor and Amos Rusie. The black and white original version is much rarer than the later color tinted version and only a few examples are known. The print is signed by the artist in pencil.

Framed, 63 x 48 1/2 in.
