Those who know and love the early game of baseball understand its place in the booming, bustling mid-Nineteenth Century east coast of North America. For the new National Pastime reflected the energy and spirit that made the place so vibrant. At precisely the same time, the art of photography was born, expanding and experimenting at a startling rate, allowing a pictorial record of the day exponentially beyond any previously known. The combination of these two cultural developments has opened a window for us into the world of baseball from the late 1850s onwards. The finest cameras of their day recorded all possible aspects of baseball. And with this Portfolio The Rucker Archive, coalescing thirty years of research and exploration, presents a collection of the most visually outstanding and historically most important photographs produced in a cartes-de-visite format.
