1896 Cabinet photo from the estate of superstar player Jake Stenzel showing six members of the Pittsburgh Pirates taking some time off during Spring Training in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Stenzel appears second from the right and the other players are not yet identified. A large cabinet photo featuring one of the best hitters in the game! Reverse carries a cool advertisement for the company that produced the image as well! One of the few vintage images of Jake Stenzel that exists in any form and this one comes directly from his personal estate. It is crazy to think he owned this image, handled it, and kept it among his prized possessions his entire life! This is one of two examples of this image known to exist and the first time this one has ever been offered publicly. It is also important to note the handwriting on the back is Stenzel's, whose autograph is worth a small fortune!
