This black-and-white photo belonged to a set of six found in North Carolina a few months ago. They all represent UNC baseball (4), football (1) or cross-country (1) teams from the late 19th or early 20th centuries. Three of them can be dated precisely to 1906 thanks to the original label still glued on the back (S.L Herndon, picture frame shop, Chapel Hill, N.C.). The photos, the boards and the frames are all original. Only one of the photos still retains its old glass panel. The backings, which were made of old cardboard, have been removed for better preservation and replaced with a white foam board. I've already sold the first three team photos of the lot on eBay. 's the fourth one, an amazing shot of the University of North Carolina baseball team with its 13 members and their coach. The photo measures 6 ½ x 13 ½ inches, the board 14 x 20, and the frame 15 x 21. It has some minor damage as shown. I charge exact shipping. thanks tyl
