"A Baseball Match," Sandham, 1896


This Henry Sandham painting has frequently been misidentified as depicting a Temple Cup game at the Polo Grounds in 1894. Here’s the correct old news, via the Boston Evening Transcript, which on March 13, 1896 announced the availability of a limited edition of 250 engravings: “Henry Sandham has painted a picture of a game in progress on the grounds of the New York League Club, and the painting has been finely reproduced in the form of a Goupilgravure.”
