2 Early 1900s Postcards Depicting Women in Baseball – Both are Unused.

Lot 234. 2 Early 1900s Postcards Depicting Women in Baseball – Both are Unused. The first features the photo of “The Western Bloomer Girls...Ladies’ Champion Base Ball Club.” Teams of “bloomer girls” originated in the late 19th century to give women the opportunity to play baseball. It was not uncommon to have two men on a team. Often one was the pitcher, and the other, the catcher. These teams barnstormed across the U.S., playing both amateur and semi-pro teams. This postcard apparently is from 1910-12 and pictures a team from Watervliet, Mich. Vg –ex. Maud Nelson established the team. She was an excellent player who became a team owner. The team played a game in Allentown, PA, on Aug. 24, 1910. The second postcard is a real-photo example with a sepia photo of a woman in full uniform holding a baseball and wearing a catcher’s glove. This postcard seems to be from the late 1800s or early 1900s. Ex. Winning Bid $40.
