Description

The 1892 New York Giants were a team that was loaded with Hall of Fame talent but did not fair too well in the league, finishing eighth. Presented is a colorized team photograph of the NY Giants from 1892 that was published by the New York Recorder newspaper. The photo was inserted in the NY Recorder sometime during the 1892 season. The image has (15) players, a manager and the bat-boy. Identified are Boyle, Murphy, Bassett, Fields, Rusie, Lyons, Powers (manager), Ewing, Fuller, Crane, Welsh, Tiernan, Sharott, Gore and O’Rourke. There is one unidentified player and it could be Willie Keeler, who was on the team, and that would make a grand addition to the four Hall of Famers, Amos Rusie, Mickey Welsh, Jim O’Rourke and Buck Ewing. The 8x10 photo is in excellent condition and is ready for framing.
