Paul Thompson photo of Mike Donlin, Matty, Hooks Wiltse. 1911?
 
Having some trouble nailing down where/when this event took place. Superb shot of the Giants but what is the significance of the gold bat? Coming up empty on info via the web.

According to the Dressed to the Nines database it looks as though these would have to be road unis which seems odd. 1911 road uni is the only one that appears to match based on the years Donlin was with the Giants. 1910 home jersey would work but he didn't play in 1910 :confused: .

Well, looks like I just answered my own question. According to this, the photo was taken in 1914:

Better yet, Matty appears to be wearing his 1913-1914 World Tour sweater!

Yep, that's the one. I've got at least one other shot of Matty in that sweater. Will try and post later or tomorrow at some point.
