This is from 1865 (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/sns-rt-us-baseball-card-auctionbre91516z-20130206,0,7615922.story) even though Baseball-Reference says the team started in 1884 (http://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/LAD/). Maybe the date in the Tribune story is a typo?

The Trib is right. The Brooklyn Atlantics are not related to the Brooklyn Dodgers, except by geography. The Atlantics were active in one form or another from 1855-1882.
