Description



Graded 20 Fair by 1.5 by SGC due to reverse writing. Although more fiction than fact, Abner Doubleday is still inextricably connected to baseball, the game he purportedly invented. A military man, Doubleday is pictured on this circa 1870s CDV published by Taber & Co. of New Bedford, Massachusetts. This antique pictures Doubleday during his tenure as Brigadier-General in the United States Army.
