1860 Pre Civil War Baseball Sheet Music Live Oaks Rochester New York Lone Stars. The 1860 Live Oak Polka sheet music is the earliest, and is without question the most spectacular, of all color baseball sheet music. It is also universally recognized as one of the most spectacular and revered of all nineteenth century baseball display pieces.
The cover depicts a baseball game in progress with a patriotic motif of an American flag draped across the top. A player is pictured in the foreground, leaning on a bat in full period uniform. The detail of the game in progress scene is remarkable, with players in uniforms, spectators in formal dress, and tremendous background detail. There are very few baseball related lithographic art pieces dating from the era of the Civil War. This is one of the few, and perhaps the very finest, with unparalleled design and production values.
This is a rare piece, equally at home in a museum setting or most advanced collection devoted to Americana, the Civil War, American lithography, or Baseball. The item "1860 Pre Civil War Baseball Sheet Music Live Oaks Rochester New York Lone Stars" is in sale since Monday, August 30, 2021.
