Displaying confidence and poise, the young James A. Downey stands tall wearing his Toronto Maple Leafs uniform in four vintage 1902 studio cabinet photographs. The Downey cabinets were produced by HC Weasner of Buffalo, NY and capture the young baseballer in three different poses. Three of the Downey cabinets measure 5 ½” x 8 ½” with one slightly larger at 6 ½” x 9 ½” and all are in very good condition with nary a crease to be found. The remaining four cabinets feature four different turn-of-the-century baseball teams in varying sizes and conditions. First and definitely foremost is the smallest of the group – a 6 ¾” x 5 ¾” team view of the 1902 Toronto Maple Leafs featuring Hall of Fame executive Ed Barrow, who was part owner and manager of the club. The 1902 Toronto image is stellar and crisp with only a single noticeable mark on the photographic surface. The other three picture include an earlier image of the Toronto Maple Leafs (circa 1898) measuring 9” x 7” and in GD-VG condition, a youth baseball team (circa 1925) with a heavy crease along the left portion of the image and finally a 13 ½” x 10 ½” photograph of a Urbana, Ohio men’s and women’s team featuring (40) distinct players from both teams in excellent condition. This collection of vintage images has incredible staying power and will most definitely draw considerable attention with the Ed Barrow cabinet and Girl’s Team photo heading the way.
