Birth of Baseball Cards

Together with an image of Tip O'Neill, from the St. Louis Browns, the D. Buchner Company published this notice letting customers know the company would also release images of other famous people—including leading baseball players—in packages of chewing tobacco.

This card appeared in the Buchner Gold Coin Card Set (N284) during 1887.

The Library of Congress maintains this object as part of the Benjamin K. Edwards Collection of Baseball Cards.
