1893 Community College of New York football team cabinet. Crisp image of what appears to be the freshman team (photo dated 1893 on reverse and ball reads "C. C. N. Y. 1896"). Of note is the inscription on the reverse that states that one of the players (Hugh Saussa) from the photo was killed during a game in 1893. Some research confirmed that Saussa was tragically killed in a game against the Elizabeth, N. J. Athletic Club.

The cabinet measures 8 3/4" x 12 1/2" and appears to be albumin mounted on heavy cardboard.
