Turn-of-the-century Hugh Duffy Cabinet display picturing the Hall of Famer with the same black-and-white image used in the 1906 Fan Craze issue. The 5-1/8 x 7-1/4” portrayal is tightly adhered to the period 8-3/4 x 11” matting. Beneath the portrait of the stoic nineteenth century star is a calligraphy styled proclamation regarding his .438 batting average in 1894. Although a two inch surface imperfection is discernible to the left of his portrait, the perfectly contrasted image is not seriously compromised. More on our website.
Age-induced perimeter toning does not affect the overall presentation of the display in the least. Period pencil notations confirming the player, other numerals and the statement on the obverse in verbatim are placed on the reverse.
