        Brief History of Baseball
   At the end of the Civil War there were more
    people playing baseball than ever before.
   Up to 1869, baseball teams were comprised of
    amateurs.
   In 1869 the Cincinnati Red Stockings became
    the first all professional team and were
    undefeated.
   This was the rise of the professional clubs over
    amateurs.
   In 1871 the National Association became the
    first professional league.
                 Baseball Cards
   Baseball Cards are almost
    as old as baseball itself.
   Originally baseball cards
    were only available by
    buying cigarettes.
   By viewing old baseball
    cards we can get a sense
    of the early game of
    baseball and its ‘stars’.
