    There has been extensive documentation of 19th Century uniforms on the Threads of Our Game website, through 1896 at this point. The uniforms in the attached photo in the first post do not match any known uniform for teams in Philadelphia or Pittsburg(h) in the 1800's. You can see the uniforms for the Pennsylvania teams at this link: https://www.threadsofourgame.com/category/region/panj/

    Most likely, with only nine players, it is a local team in a town whose name begins with P. Many amateur teams at that time gathered to have a group photograph taken.
    Where did you find this card (location)? Is there a date on it or studio? What is on the back? My other hobby is genealogy and the more info you can provide, the better the chance is that this can get identified.

    I don't think the Pirates ever wore hat like that. Also by the time the Pirates were founded teams were carrying more than 9 players.

    I'd like some help identifying the team in this cabinet card. Looks similar to the Pirates, but I can't find any others that look similar.
