A photograph of an 1865 baseball team, perhaps the oldest known "baseball card," sold for $92,000 at a Saco River auction in Biddeford, Me., last Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013. The picture of the Brooklyn Atlantics club was found inside an old photo album. The buyer bought it as an investment for his young son.
