Judging by the "1893" notation on back, Jack Wadsworth was then in service of Ned Hanlon's notorious Baltimore Orioles—that merry, motley crew led by John McGraw, Hughie Jennings, Joe Kelley and Wilbert Robinson. Wadsworth also played for the Cleveland Spiders (with Cy Young) and Louisville Colonels (with Fred Clarke) during his 4-year career. The first of his cabinet photos that we've ever come across, this is a 4-1/4 x 6-1/2, gilt-edged, sturdy, supremely well-preserved example with breathtaking image quality, beautiful embossing ("Saunders Portraits / Wellington, Ohio"), and Wadsworth's name hand-captioned on the reverse. Displays as EX-MT.
