This is a relatively unusual format of chromolithographic baseball art in which a player's 
baseball card image was superimposed over an idyllic scene and used as a postcard.  This 
handsome fellow is James H. Fogarty, right fielder for the Philadelphia Quakers in 1887.  
He was an alumnus of Saint Mary's College of California (site of a World War II nude 
body typing photo project) and tragically died at age 27 of tuberculosis.
