Unidentified St. Louis Baseball Players From The 1890's
As I promised in this post, here are photos of the individual members of one of the unidentified teams.
Not a whole lot to go on. The pictures were obviously taken at the Fischer studios at 9th and Franklin, most likely by Joseph Fischer himself or a member of his family. The players are in uniform and wearing a badge, a button, and a medal. The ribbon of the medal appears to read "West St. Louis Convention."
