Chick Gandil. I think this is a Washington uniform but Conlon has "White Sox" on the back. Interesting:

LOVE that Gandil, Andrew! It's definitely from his stint with Washington, and is from either 1912 or 1913.

Graig, it's a stunningly clear shot isn't it? There's also another Gandil where this came from. Will post later on today.

Came across these two today. Joe McGinnity and Ty Cobb. Sorry for the crappy pics. Just trying to avoid glare from the lights above. McGinnity is maybe 4x6 and the Cobb is closer to 8x10. Too bad it's a little rough around the edges but still a great piece.

Default Two Early Conlon Photos

Two Charles M. Conlon photos from early in his career (backs dated 1906 and 1907) of Cleveland’s Harry Bemis and Joe Birmingham. These Type 1 photos are 4” x 6”. I just posted these for sale in the B/S/T section if you’re interested.

I think the prints are mis-dated by a few years. The Cleveland Naps didn't wear dark caps with light-colored shirts and pants until 1910.

Default Conlon Ernie Koob & Hod Eller

Great thread & certainly one of my favorites.
Both of these Type I Conlon's joined my no-hit pitcher photo collection in 2017:
St. Louis Browns hurler LHP Ernie Koob circa 1917 and Reds RHP pitcher Hod Eller circa 1919-1920.

Yes, it is approx. 8 x 10 and I believe it is from 1919 or 1920 as I stated in my 1st post.

Here is the back of the photo.

Thanks Scott. It looks similar, but I thought I may have missed something that the Net54 sleuths wouldn’t miss.

I dunno. Socks don't look like they match. Also, long sleeve shirt he's wearing may be different colors.

Andy, here's my companion piece to yours (Adams Gum ad in the background). To me the Strunk pic looks more like a Conlon than a Thompson, but it's got the Thompson stamp on the back.

Scott,

That photo of yours is amazing as well. Inside Disney World in Orlando, there is a Hot Dog place called Casey’s which has a bunch of 1910’s memorabilia including photos. That photo of yours, currently sits on their wall. Not sure if it’s an original type 1 like yours or just a reproduction. Here it is.

Well, the material from Hunt was consigned by Photo File and has been in our archives for the past 40 years. It could be that we reproduced the Strunk shot for Casey's. Seeing what else they've got on the walls and if it matches other images from our archive might back that up.

I also have a Nelson "Chicken" Hawks from the BB Magazine archive. It is marked up for use. Is it worth cleaning? How is it accomplished and any risk?

Default cleaning of photo

Try a little warm water on a cotton ball. Start in a small area, say the ground under Hawks' feet. Put a piece of paper towel over the print and place it in a heavy book when it dries, then repeat. If you tackle a big area at once, the photo will curl up. Even after you get it clean, there may still be a "ghost" around the image. Some guys like them all slopped up by the newspaper art department. I don't know if it is worth more restored, but it certainly will be a cleaner looking image. Don't do too much scrubbing as you could begin to remove the actual image.

This is what was sold to me as a Conlon photo. I was interested primarily in the photo since Jim Thorpe is 2nd from the end on the left holding the Belgium flag. John McGraw is out in front. A lot of you probably can identify some of the others. If it is a Conlon then that’s a bonus for sure! Lot 454 of the just ended Huggins and Scott auction has another view from a news service. There is another one of the same event by Underwood & Underwood on eBay right now. It is from the 1917 World Series. I’m not familiar at all with what would identify the picture as taken by Conlon but many of you probably could if there are identifiers that I’m not aware of. Maybe the writing on back is Conlon’s? I’m just taking the work from a fellow collector. If it’s not a Conlon then please accept my apologies for posting the photo. At worst you all will get to see a nice baseball photo? I welcome any insight on whether it could be a Conlon photo or not!

This is a Conlon photo. The first paragraph is in Conlon’s handwriting. Also, the seller you bought this one from is somewhat knowledgeable in the field.

In comparing handwriting it looked like Conlon but I’m not familiar at all. I’ve bought from the seller before and the items were what he said so I definitely took him at his word. Thank you for confirming that it is a Conlom!

That's a great photo. If you get our catalog we dedicated a section to the pioneer lensmen.

Love photos like yours that tell a story. Very cool.
