Original folk art, circa 1920s, depicting a first baseman preparing to spring "the hidden ball trick" on an unsuspecting baserunner. The painting (most likely acrylic on board) pictures the first baseman acting nonchalant, with a whistle upon his lips, discreetly holding the ball in his glove as he waits for the runner to take his lead. The artist is unknown, as no signature is present. The painting (17x21") displays a few minor surface scratches and remains housed in its original period frame. Total dimensions: 19.5x23.5".
