DESCRIPTION:

(Lot 1) 1886 Macintire Studio Cabinets Harry Wright (facing his right) PSA Authenticated

1887-89 Harry Wright Macintire Studio Cabinet PSA Authenticated. Born in England, Wright came to America with his father who was well known as a Cricket player. Along with Harry's brothers Sam and George, the three sons took up the game of baseball when it began in America. Harry Wright became a pioneer of this new game. Harry joined the New York base ball club, the Knickerbockers. Backed by investors from Ohio, Wright formed the Cincinnati Red Stockings with his younger brother George. This was the first professional base ball club. This team went undefeated in 1869 with 65 wins and 0 losses. Wright managed the Boston Red Stockings in 1871 through 1875, the Boston Red Caps from 1867 through 1871, the Providence Grays from 1882 to1883, and the Philadelphia Quakers (Phillies) from 1884 through 1893. Harry Wright was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1953.

The cabinet is in excellent condition.  It is from a series of nine cabinets of members of the 1886 Philadelphia National League team.  The cabinet measures 4 1/2" x 6 1/2".  This variation is "Harry Wright (facing his right)".  The only noticeable flaws are: 1) a tiny spec of paper loss on the sepia toned photo in the upper left on the front, and 2) on the back of the cabinet there are two places where it appears that paper loss was filled in with two brush strokes of a similar cream color on the back of the cabinet (which is the reason for the authentic grade, and can be seen in the 2nd picture below).  A very significant cabinet card of Wright who is credited as "The Father of Professional Baseball".
