Recently hand drawn and painted by Don DiFilippo on this envelope. Add-on cachet for this First day cover. Scott# 855, year 1939. Cachet is a 1 of 1 original watercolor/gouche painting. The Mutual Baseball Club of New York (New York Mutuals) played baseball in the National Amateur Association beginning in 1858 to 1870. They won the association pennant in 1868. They were also members of the National Association (1871-1875) and the National League (1876).They executed the first triple play in major league history on may 13, 1876, against the Hartford Dark Blues.The Mutuals were one of the eight charter members of the National League in 1876. They didn't have the funds to go on road games (required by the new National League) and were expelled that same year.
