This pc has long been listed as depicting Chief Wilson. For sure it does not. The real Chief Wilson is below right.

The uniform collar style is black over and under with black ring around neck. It does not match any Pit NL team (thanks to board member dto7 for this tip). It does match Was AL 1902, 1903 and 1907 (home).

The player on the PC is Howard Paul "Highball" Wilson c1903 (shown below right with Norwich).

your usual great work!
I must say that the card looks almost nothing like Owen.
Your new match for the card is perfect and one I did not know.

many thanks,
barry
