Any thoughts? Might be a bit of a reach.

Without the obligatory ear comparison, that sure looks like him.

I say no way that's him!

I understand why you might feel that way, but I'd take a pass. (Not to mention the fact that young Honus likely never visited Cadillac, Michigan!).

There are some similarities, but I say no as well.

Looks something like Ginger Beaumont - tho' the ears say no.

Sure looks like a young Dutchman. And there is a Caddy connection.

Perhaps on first blush it looks like the Dutchman but jawline, bridge of nose, eyelids, and the right ear are all different. Maybe it was his cousin, Jughead Wagner.

I wouldn't rule it out. A few minutes of internet research reveals that Wagner played for the Adrian Reformers of the Michigan State League in 1895, when he was 21 years old. Adrian and Cadillac are not exactly right next to each other, but both are in the Lower Peninsula.

Not him. Not only the ear shape, but Honus didn't have a cleft chin.

Thanks for all the comments. Close but no match.
