The 1860 Excelsiors

The Excelsiors, in their history, featured such famous players as Jim Creighton, Asa Brainard, and Candy Cummings.

The Excelsiors made a famous tour in 1860 around New York and to big cities in other states, and according to Al Spalding, that tour (which was followed in the press) inspired thousands of young men.
