From The Raconteurs Instagram post for this poster:

"In the early 1870s, the first baseball team to play for Pittsburgh was The Raconteurs. This was prior to the formation of the Allegheny Base Ball Club in 1876. At the start of the 1891 season, The Alleghenies renamed themselves The Pirates, as a nod to the distinct eye patches worn by those pioneering players."
