BASEBALL TEAM PORTRAIT : TRIPOLI, IOWA : BATS, BALL, GLOVES : RPPC (1912)

This vintage real photo postcard features a portrait of members of a baseball team. Pictured are ten uniformed players and presumably, their coach clad in a shirt and tie. The coach is holding a glass of wine or champagne. I wonder if he is celebrating a victory. Note the players equipment seen in the first row. You can see gloves, a catcher’s mit,  bats, and even a baseball. This baseball team is from Tripoli, Iowa. The team members look to old to be high school players. Perhaps the team was in a semi pro league. This photo postcard was postmarked in 1912. (SOLD)
