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.
Thanks for the info. I will do that. Appreciate it.

Thanks, another possibility. I hope Jerry Cohen can help shed some light but will check this out also.

I'm pretty sure it's the Duluth Dukes. Looks like you can see the "s" at the end of the logo.

Here's a link to an ebay auction from one of those guys who senselessly slice up old baseball guides magazines. It is part of a 1940 article and shows what looks like this jersey. Not complete match, but the sleeve and front piping looks close. Hat looks close, too.

Thanks, I looked at the EBay listing and the piping does look the same. It may even be Joe Schmidt since he was so well known back then. I did not go back far enough on Duluth Dukes - just looked at current website. Will do some more research.

Default 1937 Duluth Dukes

Looks like a pretty close uniform match. 1937 Duluth Dukes (Northern League; Minnesota).

Tim,

Thanks and thanks to all who helped me. It seems pretty certain this is a Duluth Dukes player. Now I would like to id him.

Thanks again to all.

I tried Jerry Cohen of Ebbets Field Flannels but apparently he couldn't help. I did not hear back directly but Client Relations responded that, since he didn't reply, he couldn't help.

So here is where I am - thanks to the help on the site I am pretty sure this is a picture of a Duluth Dukes player. Given the frame it is in I presume from the 1930's-40's. I can not make out enough to even suggest the site. I can not find pictures of individual Duluth Dukes pictures from this era. I looked at Major League players who played with the Dukes but there are not enough pictures to make any kind of an ID. I guess this guy will remain a mystery and someone will find it in my collection and wonder the same thing and why I have it. Thanks for all the help.

It may not be important enough to ya to pursue further, but it's hard to believe the answer isn't discoverable somewhere.
The Duluth Dukes played as such for just nine seasons in the likely time-frame (1934-42) and their rosters are relatively
(relatively) well documented at http://www.baseball-reference.com/ -- photos of the team's very few eventual major leaguers
even showed some suspects -- and there have to be some extant team pictures or other ephemera that could identify your guy.
Many's the time we've hit a brick wall on some artifact in our own collecting niche and had to put it on the back burner for...
years, in some cases -- only to have have some tidbit of information show up unexpectedly and relate to a second thing
that's similar to a third thing which leads us to the answer about the first thing.

Thanks. I checked some of pictures I could find of Dukes players in the majors but there were some I couldn't find. I found a couple team pictures but couldn't get them to come up big enough to do any comparison. The tidbit of information showing up unexpectedly was oh so true when I and my cousin were researching the family name. I hit a dead as he did but several years later a person responded with some obscure information that opened the flood gates and he was able to take us back to the 1600's.
