I thought the same thing. The lady who owns it knew I was a baseball guy and was surprised I didn't know who it was, after all it is a baseball player

Default Duke Yearbooks

If you have the time....here are Duke University yearbooks online. I did a quick look of the 40s and 50s and I didn't see that style uniform

Hadn't thought of that. Did they have a team in the 30's 40's? From the style frame this picture was in, I thought it might be from that era. Just guessing.
I also will look at Duke Yearbooks. Thanks.

I have contacted the Albuquerque Dukes to see if they is anyone who might be able to at least give me a Yea or Ney based on uniform. The Duluth Dukes didn't start until 2007 according to the website and this picture is from the 30's or 40's I think. I will try the Duke yearbooks next. Thanks.

Try sending it to Jerry Cohen, the owner of Ebbets Field Flannels. He specializes in obscure minor league flannels and is always helpful when I have a question researching the uniforms for one of my illustrations.

I wonder if there is enough of the ball park in the background to ID the city. It looks like he has a new white home jersey mixed with grey or really old pants, so it may be a spring training or tryout picture.
