A "colored" club that played the Alerts of DC. The club was in some ways the successor to the Chicago Blue Stockings, with several players (such as William P. Johnson and George Brown) having played for the Blue Stockings. See Brunson, "The Early Image of Black Baseball" for more on this team.
In 1874, the Uniques placed 2nd to the Socials of Chicago in a state amateur baseball tournament in Peoria. See Chicago Tribune, Aug. 15, 1874.

Win/Loss Records As Far As We Now Know
Warning: Users should not rely on a team's won-loss record as a reflection of its "standing" among all base ball clubs. Team schedules were not balanced, and a good record against mostly weak opponents does not signify a leading club.
