Other than the Ned Hanlon Tomlinson cabinet that is Lot 3 in the current Huggins and Scott auction, is anyone aware of other Tomlinson cabinets of players in street clothes attire?

I have several of them in my collection. They date to 1887 and are mentioned in OC issue #13, "Tomlinson Galleries: Photo Source for Early Detroit Baseball Cards".

Thanks. I don't have that OC issue. Apart from the Hanlon now in the Huggins auction, are any of the Tomlinsons in street clothes of Hall of Famers? Or is Hanlon the only one?

Thompson and White are both known and in very good condition.

However, this is the only street clothes version of Hanlon, that you have ever seen, is that correct, Joe?

That is correct Josh, it is the only Hanlon in street clothes portrait I'm aware of from 1887. Actually, all the 1887 portraits I'm aware of, in street clothes, are only known copies. Kind of makes them difficult to collect. There are however other earlier known cabinets of Hanlon in street clothes such as the attached copy (from 1883). I personally prefer cabinets in uniform but collect both.

Good luck with the auction, you have some real nice items.
