This collection presents a Library of Congress treasure -- 2,100 early baseball cards dating from 1887 to 1914. The cards show such legendary figures as Ty Cobb stealing third base for Detroit, Tris Speaker batting for Boston, and pitcher Cy Young posing formally in his Cleveland uniform. Other notable players include Connie Mack, Walter Johnson, King Kelly, and Christy Mathewson.
Cigarette card collector Benjamin K. Edwards preserved these baseball cards in albums with more than 12,000 other cards on many subjects. After his death, Edwards' daughter gave the albums to noted poet and Lincoln biographer Carl Sandburg, who donated them to the Library's Prints and Photographs Division in 1954.

What's New in Version 1.0.2
* Minor bug fixes
The card images are all squeezed into the same size. Depending on which set you are looking at, this could look horrible. For example the Hassan triple fold cards look awful. Same with the Fatima team cards. Could use an update.
Also, the navigation is a pain. It would be nice to be able to scroll through a set instead of being forced to go back to the set checklist all the time.
It's like being able to view a baseball card museum for only a couple of dollars. Love it.
