Identification: White Stars BBC

Here's a nice identification project to jump start the baseball iconography blog.

The photograph in Carte de Visite format, shows the White Stars Baseball Club from Decorah in 1870.

Period ink used to ID the image with the A.D. ( Anno Domini) caption before the year.

The only Decorah I know of is in Iowa, but little to none about early baseball activity in the area have been found.

I've been unable to find any other information on the web about this club.

Feel free to drop us a line if you have anything that can help the project.
