Exceptional cabinet photo published by Allen & Ginter, featuring a female "ballplayer" posing in a form-fitting "baseball uniform."  the 5" x 7 1/2" cabinet advertises the "Polka Dot Nine," one of nine different cabinets featuring female players at the various baseball positions.  A promotional piece advertising Virginia Brights Cigarettes, these cabinet photos are considerably rare, certainly more so than many of the popular baseball issues featuring professional players.  This example, #4 in the series, grades GOOD due to overall wear throughout, though the image itself presents extremely well, with crisp contrast and sharpness.  The ornately-designed mount, with its red edges, is also quite attractive despite the wear, more representative of a photo studio cabinet than the promotional cabinets issued by cigarette companies.
