"Double Him Up" is the title of this highly engaging portrayal, wherein a young lady in full uniform focuses rapt attention on a suspended ball. A very faint number (perhaps, "4" or "5") appears in the bottom right corner. The relic measures 5" x 7-1/2", and consists of a photo attached to an exceptionally eye-catching mount: the red-edged, thick-cardboard backing carries elaborately designed branding legends, as well as the set's title and a note about the series' "nine different subjects representing the various positions in base-ball." Very mild, general surface wear is present, and one tiny pinhole is discernible near the top-center of the blank-backed mount. Great contrast and detail are apparent in this memorable studio image, with fences, hills, trees and clouds visible in the backdrop. Overall EX/MT appearance.
