Professional photographers began producing cabinet cards in 1867, and people soon preferred these photographic prints on cardboard stock to the earlier, smaller cartes-de-visite. American commonly collected and exchanged cabinet photographs through the early 1900s, often to commemorate friends or family. A young man dressed in a baseball uniform posed for this portrait in a Grayling, Michigan studio in the late 1880s.
