Good pick-up, Derek, I missed that one but will add it to my list right now.

After much deliberation, I have decided to eliminate the generic individual press photos from my listing. The primary reason for my decision being that it is impossible to tell if each of these was actually produced in the same year that the photo was taken and, even if they were, there are an infinite number of other possible photos which could also exist in the same manner. Not sure yet what I am going to do with the press photos picturing teams but a good possibility of the same thing exists.

Phil. I see that once you removed the press photos from the list, that Larry Macphail came all the way up to the TCMA pc in '73. Let's roll that one back to 1947, with True Comics #65. Although, I do have a "Paps" cartoon of Macphail from the 30's(can't remember what year exactly), it's ultimately just cut out from a newspaper.

Hey Phil. I just won this RPPC in the most recent Hake's, picturing Willie Wells, that purportedly dates to 1925. The auction listing said that it was the earliest image they had ever heard of. From the Richard Merkin collection. Item #1163, if you wanna look it up.

Nice pick-up, Dave, that's an interesting enough item to put on my list.

You are correct, Ken, nice pick-up on that one BTW the 1925 date is correct based on my research as well. I was in the bidding for a while but ended up focusing my limited resources elsewhere. I will make the update on my list.

Default not sure where this falls

I recently picked up a 1947 wire photo of Robin Roberts and a college teammate (Martin Hansen) - both are pictured in their MI St. uniforms pointing on a map to the minor league cities they had been assigned to, and the accompanying text reflects their signings by the Phillies (Roberts for $25K and Hansen for $12K) and minor league assignments (Roberts to Wilmington of the Eastern League and Hansen to Terre Haute of the Three-I League).
The back has a date stamp of Dec. 10, 1947.
As a non-team press photo, it's probably outside the list, but IMO it's probably his first collectible identifying his as being in professional baseball.

Nick:

I used to own that one. It doesn't really qualify based on the parameters that I used but definitely one of the very earliest Roberts baseball images.

Default 2007 Denny Matthews Pinback in Hake's Auction

It's been quite a while since we had any input on this thread. I was checking out the latest auction for Hake's Americana today and came across a pin-back which would match the earliest baseball collectible for Denny Matthews, Frick Award Winner from the KC Royals and a HOF inductee from 2007. Here is a link to the item in case anyone is interested:

Default Nice!

I'd love to see this same list but using the first image of each in their first professional / major league uniform.
