Default Dodgers baseball card sells for $92,000

This is from 1865 even though Baseball-Reference says the team started in 1884. 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.
