Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>Thanks Aaron. Before Tobey was a ring announcer he was a pitcher with the Nebraska Indians....I am trying to learn more about his career in the boxing world.<br /><br />That's Tobey in the clown outfit circa 1905<br /><img src="http://i22.photobucket.com/albums/b331/nudan92/Nebraska%20Indians%20Baseball%20Team/neb-ind2.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>He appears on a few of the Nebraska Indians postcards. I would love to find a postcard of him in the boxing ring as that is where he gained his fame...doubtful one exists, but you never know. He was a very unique individual and he did some crazy things when he was with the NI team.. If I have time some day I may do a nice little write up on him on the memorabilia board.<br /><br />Thanks again to Aaron for the link to that old photo. I purchased it today...anyone here ever dealt with that company (Boxingtreasures.com/Dave's Classic Collectibles) before?
