One of the first deaf baseball players, John "Dummy" Ryn competed in several high level minor leagues during the 1880s-1890s. Ryn had a three-year tenure with the Minneapolis Millers of the Western Association from 1889-1891 and is seen in his Millers uniform, positively dating this 4-1/8 x 6-3/8" cabinet card to c.1890. Credited to "Miller" photography studio of Minneapolis, this 19th Century relic is likely quite rare given the location of his team, which was fairly remote at the time. Third party certification service SGC has saw fit to rate this ancient photo a "1", however despite this lower level grade assignment, this 140-year old baseball photograph remains appealing with age-appropriate signs of wear.
