Wow, that's an interesting article. They did a lot of homework to figure out all the details in those photos.

Thanks. It made me think about not only the motivation for a card or series of cards for them to chose - but as there appears to be no duplicates - did they trade for cards - put the extras up on another wall - throw them away? The first guy was definitely a national league guy...... I have a couple of similar shots with mostly the gals of the early teens, some mixed images, and no baseball :-)

I see a couple of duplicates in the pictures, Tinker (bat on shoulder) and White (buffalo).
