Default Federal League HOF photos, how rare? 1915 Roush shown

I am curious as to how rare Type 1 photos of ML HOFers in Federal League uniforms are. Post any that you have.

Here is mine. It is a 8 x 10 of Edd Roush in 1915 with the Newark Peppers.

Here is a paragraph from SABR's bio on Roush:

"Roush wielded a short, thick-handled bat that weighed 48 ounces, one of the heaviest ever in baseball. He snapped the bat at the ball with his arms and placed line drives to all parts of the field by shifting his feet after the ball left the pitchers hand and altering the timing of his swing. "Place hitting is in a sense glorified bunting," he said. "I only take a half swing at the ball, and the weight of the bat rather than my swing is what drives it."

The photo perfectly exhibits the technique described above.

That image of Roush (in an edited version) appeared in a number of newspapers in 1915, including the Kingston Daily Freeman (June 16th), the Dakota County Herald (June 17th), the St. Joseph Observer (June 19th), and the Chickasha Daily Express (July 1st), to name a few that come up in searches. Your Type 1 photo is a big improvement over the newsprint image:

Thanks RUKen! I had seen the newsprint image before, but never the story that accompanies it. Great information to have.

Are Type 1 photos of HOF players in Federal League uniforms really this hard to find? Surely someone here has one to post!
