There's also a good selection of older baseball cards on flickr. Terrapin, form sportsfilter, scanned his collection of his of older tobacco cards.

I have a collection of images from the somewhat obscure 1887 Kalamazoo Bats card set, notable for its rarity and staged poses here.

That's a great set, Geoff. Thanks for sharing it.

For the record, the Library of Congress has a wonderful collection of early cards, and it's digitized and online: http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/bbhtml/bbhome.html
