Unidentified St. Louis Baseball Teams From The 1890's

This is an interesting group of cabinet photos from's Ebay gallery. They are identified as being of St. Louis baseball teams and are dated between 1891 and 1896.

We have a few clues about the identity of the teams but it's really not much to go on. The photographer of each photo is identified and we have information about where the photographs were taken. Also, there is a seperate group of photos, which I may post later, of individual members of one of the teams. These photos show the players wearing badges that may help in identifying them.

Certainly, it's a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma but I like the photos and wanted to share them.
