Mysterious Baseball Portrait Remains A Mystery09:46

This article is more than 8 years old.

When Only A Game's Doug Tribou began to investigate a portrait that some say may be the first ever depiction of baseball, he knew he might not get a clear answer. He hoped that after hearing about the mystery on the radio, the portrait's new owners would come forward and the mystery could be investigated further.

Thus far, no new information has come to light as a result of Doug's investigation.  Do you know where the mysterious portrait is today?  Do you have any more information about which stick and ball game these two boys might have been playing?  Post your theories here.
