Newspaper, an authentic and original issue of the Harpers Weekly, July 2, 1870, 16pp., disbound, minor repairs else VG. In fine condition this is a $200 newspaper. Why? Certainly the prime feature of this issue is the upper half of a doublepage centerfold which shows an expansive view of a baseball game in progress, between the Brooklyn Atlantics and the Cincinnati Red Stockings. The caption reads: "Base Ball.--The Match Between the 'Red Stockings' and the 'Atlantics' " In this historic game the Atlantics defeated the Red Stockings 8-7. The victory by the Brooklyn team snapped the 84 game winning streak by the Red Stockings, which began the year prior. A report about the Red Stockings' tour against various New York teams appears on another page. A nice print of one of the most famous baseball matches of the 19th century.
