What are woodcuts? Woodcuts are artist renderings carved into a block of wood. The renderings are then partially covered with ink and used as sort of a stamp to print the image on paper. Here’s Wikipedia’s explanation of the process.
Harper’s Weekly included a variety of woodcut images, some of which included baseball. Here are some that have been documented.
