(LOT #29) c1903 William Doyle Dallas Giants Minor League Cabinet

Extraordinary early cabinet card of William Doyle from his Minor League team - the Dallas, Texas Giants.  Crystal clear image of Doyle fielding with arms outstretched.  Doyle played for the Dallas Texas League during the 1903-1905 seasons. 

The back of the cabinet card has "Wm Doyle" written at the top, and at the bottom center is the studio name "Sanger Bros. Dallas Texas".  The photo is in NM or better condition.  The black cabinet card stock has some wear on the corners, a small crease in the upper right, and a chip just left of center at the top. 

This cabinet would be a perfect fit for your type, or Texas/Dallas minor league collection.  Likely a one-of-a-kind cabinet, and possibly this is one of the cabinets issued to members of the Dallas Giants for personal use. Measures 5" x 7 3/16". For reference here is a link to minor league statistics on William Doyle.
