    I have not seen one. (If I had, I would have posted it in this thread.) The same is true for the 1880 and 1882 teams.

    • There is a composite photograph that shows all the teams of The National League in 1881. Unfortunately, a couple Boston players are obscured. Here is part of that image. I'm sorry it's so small. Maybe someone can make it larger for me. If you click on it, it is viewable.

                • Off topic: It's interesting how most movies/tv shows that depict the 1880s or 1890s typically show the men with long sideburns. This is practically the symbol of that era just like powdered wigs are of the 18th century. However, all of your pictures show that in this era men had very short sideburns and the outstanding facial hair feature was in fact long, bushy mustaches, which apparently became less fashionable by the end of the 1890s/early 1900s.
