Perplexing and unique-pose 1/4 plate ruby ambrotype.
Here is a killer 1/6 plate tinted tintype of a Union Infantry soldier in his great coat.
Nice 1909 G.G. Bain photograph of Willie Hoppe attempting a masse billiard shot.
Great 1/9 plate ruby ambrotype of a Western Theater Union soldier - brandishing a sword and wearing a Hardee hat with the insignia upside-down.
Albumen photo showing incredibly detailed images of an 1892 game in progress, at Seneca Park in Rochester, New York.  There appears to be action along every base path. 1/9 plate ruby ambrotype of a boy wearing what appears to be a Confederate Kepi.
1890's - possibly earlier - baseball tintype featuring a catcher wearing a pair of early gloves, along with an early catcher's mask. 1940's Oak Titlist Willie Hoppe Cue converted by Jerry Rauenzahn
Five Approx. 4 x 5" large-format glass negatives of Willie Hoppe from the 1920's.
A pair of tintypes which really capture the effects of the preparation for war on this couple. Presumably man and wife, displayed is a Union Cavalry soldier proudly wearing his new great coat, and his wife with her right arm (actually her left) resting as close to her heart as modesty allowed.
Rare daguerreotype stereoview of 'metal Hessian soldier statue', with new casing. Subject is unknown (probably 1800-20), but 'Hessian' is as descriptive as I can get.
Carson Smith game-issued (Smith did not see action in this game) 'Marineros' jersey from September 13, 2014 game vs the Oakland Athletics. Issued for one game, worn once. Size 50. MLB Authenticated.
