Out of the hundreds of different subjects that have been documented in the 1895 Newsboy Cabinet N566 issue, only a dozen baseball players have been found. Offered is one such example of Parke Wilson, who was a backup catcher for the New York Giants around the time this card was distributed. This cabinet, which is number 202 on the bottom left of the photo, has survived very well considering its age. The cabinet grades in solid (VG-EX) condition. Even paper aging, slight wear, and spots of paper loss on the reverse affect the condition of this scarce card.
