1890's Rare photograph of former major league baseball player James Tying on the golf course. About twenty years before this image was taken, Tying was the first man to wear a catchers mask in a game for Harvard University and he was also included as one of the rarest subjects in the famous Old Judge N172 baseball card set as well. This is the only image of Tying we have ever seen and it actually dates to very close to his career as a baseball player! Photo has some editorial marks from publication but overall it presents really well.
