Description

Presented is an 1895 Newsboy Michael Tiernan cabinet that features a portrait of the New York Giants’ right fielder. Tiernan, often known as “Silent Mike,” was a solid all-round ballplayer in the late nineteenth century, and his picture has been attached to this 4-1/4 x 6-1/2 blank-backed cabinet. This piece grades (GD) with a crease on the front and paper loss on the bottom edge and right border. The reverse also contains some minor evidence of writing. However, these detractions do not hinder this artifact from being a boastable component of any vintage collection.
