With an emphasis on the National League champion New York Giants, the 1889 Goodwin & Co. Baseball Album (A35) consisted of twelve pages. With colors as vibrant as its subject's career, this John Ward page ranks among the album's most coveted entries. Displayed in an 11-3/4 x 11-3/4" frame under gray-on-red matting, this 7-7/8"-diameter round page depicts the mustachioed shortstop in his pillbox cap. The central image projects (VG-EX) quality with stunning hues emerging from Ward's uniform. Two pinholes and a faint stain are the lone factors preventing higher technical assessment. A pair of creases is confined to the perimeter, which resonates (VG) quality. The reverse is (VG), as well, with the aforementioned creases and foxing minimally affecting the printed contents.
