Default Amarillo Team 1901-07 Era

Posted this a while back in a thread asking for help securing the year of the postcards production, but thought I'd post it here as well.

Amarillo baseball team 1901-07 era...think their first team was in 1905 or 06

Chic Gandil played with Amarillo for a few months in 1906 and it is possible he's in this photo, but impossible to confirm without finding the same photo with a definitive date to it or better yet with players labeled.

Have included a 1907 comp photo of Gandil with the player that I think might be him on the postcard

Saw this at a postcard show years ago and thought it was cool. I have no information about it except what is on the back of the card (I believe what is handwritten is "Made in Hungary"). Quick Google and eBay searches did not turn up much...I saw one golf player for sale on a site based in India. I think this comes under the heading of "rare but not valuable".

Default Two new Folsom Field pickups... one extremely scarce copy.

Hi all,

A while back I had seen an image/scan depicting the stadium dedication game against Utah for Folsom Field (then Colorado Stadium) on November 1, 1924. This was only the fourth game ever played at what was then the "new" campus stadium which was a huge step forward from the small confines of the wooden bleachers of Gamble Field. CU was stepping onto the stage of big time college football. Originally I had reached out to some sources and was told that it was a colorized photo and had only been seen in reproduction format until that point. I however, recognized it as a postcard.

Well... Im excited to share with you that Ive tracked down an original copy of the postcard!

I was doing a little browsing on eBay and just happened across it as it was listed as being Gamble Field. Of course, I knew better! I was able to put in a bid on it and won! As of now I have only confirmed two copies. This is one of the neatest pieces of Buffs history depicting the greatest home field setting in college football nearly 100 years ago.

It seems that each copy was hand colored individually and was most likely done with watercolor or pastel. After a bit of searching I'm excited to finally confirm the existence of this image and thought I'd share it to be enjoyed with everyone else!

The second postcard shows the stadium and gymnasium circa 1920s-early 1930s.

Stay safe all and Sko Buffs!

Default Jesse Haines (HOF) - circa 1911

Jesse Haines (HOF) on a baseball team at a July 4th (circa 1911) Modern Woodmen of America (MWA) event. The player's uniform logo that reads "WUHS" stands for "West Union High School" - about 8 miles from where Jesse grew up in Ohio. Note that the WUHS player's cap and uniform pants are similar to Jesse's. Haines dropped out of school after the 8th grade. Born in 1893, I would guess he was about 18 years old in this photo.

Default 1907 Smoky Joe Wood - Hutchinson, Kansas

At age 17 in 1907, Smoky Joe Wood was 18-11 as a pitcher with the Hutchinson Salt Packers of the Western Association. He is pictured on the top row, third from the right.

When Walter Johnson was asked by a reporter, "Can you throw harder than Joe Wood?" Johnson said, "Listen mister, no man alive can throw any harder than Smokey Joe Wood."

Default 1907 G.W. Hull - Eddie Walsh (HOF)

1907 G.W. Hull - Ed Walsh (HOF) with the original mailing envelope. The 1906 World's Champion Chicago White Sox were known as the "Hitless Wonders" because the team's batting average for the year was only .230, worst in the American League and second-worst in the majors.

Ed Walsh went on to win 40 games (40-15) in 1908. He finished his career with a 1.82 ERA - the lowest of any major league pitcher in history.

Default Ed Walsh (HOF) - Circa 1903

Prior to joining the Chicago White Sox in 1904, Ed Walsh (HOF) was a coal miner in his hometown of Plains, PA. Here he is pictured in the back row with an unidentified team. Is that "coal dust" on his face...having just come from the mine? It's documented he played on the company team, as well as teams from Wilkes-Barre; Mount Carmel; Newark, NJ; and Meriden, CT.

I've seen photos of him with the Mount Carmel, Newark, and Meriden teams, so I know it's not any of them. I suspect this is either the company team, or the Plains (Black Diamonds), or Wilkes-Barre (Barons) team as the RPPC was found near that area.

Note the similar flip in the bangs on both the 1904 Carl Horner rookie photo and this RPPC. The man standing at the far right, may be owner Ernest Landgraf.

Default 1912 Buck Weaver - Max Stein postcard

One of the coolest cards in the hobby, this is Buck Weaver's true Rookie Card - he entered major league baseball in 1912 and this card is clearly stamped "1912" right on the front.

Buck is shown schmoozing with the ladies... Who wouldn't want this as their Rookie Card...

Default George Weiss (HOF)

Two images of George Weiss (HOF) - the one at the right is the well-known "rookie" image of him with the New Haven Colonials in 1914. The one on the left (holding the bat), I would guess pre-dates the other by 3 or 4 years - born in 1894, and based on the ages of the other players, I would guess he was about 16-years old (Circa 1910).

George Weiss built and managed the New York Yankee's farm system (1932-1947) and served as General Manager of the team (1947-1960). During his 28-year affiliation with the Yankees, the team won 15 of 19 world championships.

He retired with the New York Mets in 1966, having put together a large part of the team that would go on to win the 1969 World Series (The "Amazin' Mets).

Default 1910 Concordia - w/ Bill Wambsganss - Only Unassisted Triple Play in World Series

1910 Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Indiana with 16-year old, Bill Wambsganss - the first and only major league baseball player to complete an unassisted Triple Play in the World Series (game 5, 1920 World Series). There have only been 15 unassisted Triple Plays in major league history. This feat is rarer then a "perfect game" of which there have been 23 in major league history.

Bill Wambsganss played 13 seasons in the majors, most of it with Cleveland.

Not seeing the Walsh photo id connection.

Cool Heimer, although not a real-photo postcard. I've wondered if the RPPC that uses the same image was produced by Heimer as well (the cabinet photo using the same image was copywrited by them).

Default 1912 Boston American PC - Rabbit Maranville (HOF)

Rabbit Maranville (HOF) made his major league debut on 10 Sept 1912 with the Boston Braves. This postcard was issued by the Boston American newspaper that same year. To date, it is the only graded example in the hobby - population 1.

His earliest mainstream card did not come out until 1914.

Default First Pitchers to Enter the Hall of Fame

1907-09 Novelty Cutlery postcards of Walter Johnson and Christy Mathewson - the first two pitchers inducted into major league baseball's Hall of Fame - enshrined with the 1936 inaugural class alongside Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, and Honus Wagner. Johnson and Mathewson had a combined 790 lifetime wins. PSA & SGC have graded a combined total of 10 Walter Johnson and eight Christy Mathewson Novelty Cutlery postcards.

WALTER JOHNSON:
In 1911, sportswriter Grantland Rice popularized the nickname “The Big Train” in referring to Johnson - at a time when trains were the fastest things known to man. Ty Cobb recalled Johnson’s fastball as “Just speed, raw speed, blinding speed, too much speed.”. “The Big Train” put together a string of 10 straight 20-win seasons. During his career, he amassed 10 full seasons with a sub 2.00 ERA, completed 531 of his 666 career starts, had 110 shutouts, 12 strikeout titles, five ERA titles, and 417 lifetime wins.

CHRISTY MATHEWSON:
In the 1905 World Series, Mathewson pitched three shutouts in three starts. “He could pitch into a tin cup,” said Hall of Fame second baseman Johnny Evers. Mathewson won 20 or more games 13 times, and won 30 or more games four times, topping out at 37 wins in 1908. He led the NL in ERA five times, won five strikeout titles, and had 373 lifetime wins.

In 1918, he enlisted in the Army during World War I. While serving as a captain in France, he was accidentally exposed to mustard gas during a training exercise. He spent the next seven years battling tuberculosis and passed away on Oct. 7, 1925.

Awesome Maranville postcard. Great pose.

How are you and SGC able to date it to 1912? It seems odd that Boston American Souvenir would produce a postcard at the end of 1912 featuring a little know shortstop from a last place team who was not called up until the end of that season. I could not imagine there being much of a demand for a postcard like this in 1912.

Whatever the date, that is one of the best Maranville cards out there.

Also, is he the only known Boston National player known in the set?

It would make more sense that the postcard was issued in 1914 after the Boston Nationals swept the Philadelphia Athletics in the World Series and Maranville came in second in the MVP voting to teammate Johnny Evers.

On the surface, I agree with you.

An important thing to consider is that this was a "local" issue and not a "national" issue - a town gets excited with what they have and then hopes for next year (Go Vikings).

PSA also settled on 1912 - they list Forest "Hick" Cady as a part of the same issue. Hick Cady made his debut in 1912 for the Boston Red Sox as a catcher, playing 47 games.

Looking at this from strictly a "statistic" point of view, it makes little sense the cards were issued in 1912, however, the tangibles some players bring don't always show up in the stats - Bernie Williams, Ozzie Smith, etc... Seeing them play in person is completely different then what the stat lines show - It would not be shocking that 5'5" Rabbit Maranville generated a lot of excitement and hope for a last place team.

I don't know if there are other players from the Boston Braves in the set - If this set was issued in 1914, I would expect to have seen Johnny Evers (HOF), Dick Rudolph (26-10), and Bill James (26-7) by now.

Thanks for your post

I would not trust either PSA or SGC with their dating, especially on something as rare as your Maranville postcard. They generally just copy their info from the different guides and do not change it unless someone can provide proof otherwise. For example, I think that they still refer to 1949 Leaf cards as being from 1948. LOL.

Do you have an image of the Hick Cady postcard? If so, I would love to see it.

The Cady card was listed in an REA auction. This one wasn't graded, and PSA has only graded one (I assume the same card image). I don't own the card.

Default Boston Daily American Postcards

The checklists I found, showed these eight players - of course, there could be others. I found an image of all except Hub Perdue.

The four cards in the top row are all in the same format and are all listed as a "Boston Daily American Souvenir" on the bottom. The Tris Speaker and Jake Stahl cards (at the bottom left) are both issued as "Boston American Series" and are in different formats then the cards above.

In dating the cards, it is important to note, Manager Jake Stahl was released from the team in July 1913. The player-manager of any baseball team of the time also functioned as the captain of the team, but this was not the way the Red Sox were organized in 1912. Jake Stahl managed the team and played first base, but Heinie Wagner was the Red Sox captain. Jake Stahl only managed the Boston Red Sox from 1912 to July 1913. They won the World Series in 1912.

Boston Braves: Of the eight players shown, only Hub Perdue and Rabbit Maranville played for the Boston Braves at the time.

In trying to determine why a light hitting 5'5" rookie shortstop like Rabbit Maranville on a last place team would have been included in this set in 1912, I point to his own words in 1912:

The fall of 1912 my fielding was above the average, but my hitting was not so good, I was the talk of the town because of my peculiar way of catching a fly ball. They later named it the Vest-Pocket Catch. Boston wasnt drawing any too good, but it seemed like everyone that came out to the park, came to see me make my peculiar catch or get hit on the head.

Rick, those are absolutely awesome postcards.

I think that the top 4 postcards are all from the same set - PC742-2 Boston Daily American. They all use the exact same font which lists the player's full name, "Red Sox" and their position. They also have "Boston Daily American Souvenir" printed on the bottom left and have what I assume is a Union logo and the number 96 in the bottom right. They all have a very consistent look to them. They were definitely issued in 1912, the year that the Red Sox won the World Series.

I think that the three postcards at the bottom come from three different "sets." They are have a much different look from each other and look nothing like the 1912 PC742-2 Boston Daily American Souvenir postcards to me.

Thanks for sharing that image. I do not remember seeing that one before. I do not think that the Cady and the Maranville postcards are from the same set though.

Cady was with the Boston Red Sox for the entire year and was the starting catcher for six of their eight World Series games.

Circa 1909 RPPC of John "Doc" Lavan pictured with the Bridge Street Merchants of Grand Rapids, Michigan. His major league career spanned from 1913 to 1924.

Default 1906 Washington Americans

The 1906 Washington baseball team lost 95 games and finished next-to-last in the American League. The team was led by player-manager Jake Stahl. Stahl's managerial record across two seasons in Washington and another two in Boston is not impressive. And though he was a World Series champion in 1912 and led the American League in home runs in 1910, he is best remembered as the acknowledged eponym of the term "jaking it", a baseball phrase for faking an injury to stay out of the lineup, or otherwise loafing.

Washington's prospects took a decided turn for the better the next year with the arrival of a 19 year-old pitcher out of the bush leagues of Idaho named Walter Johnson. He got there too late for the 1907 Sporting Life premium, but he is in the 1908 version, which might be his first appearance on a card or premium.

The available sources for this seem to be 21st century internet sites, which lack citations of any publications from Stahl's era that use the term "jaking it" with a clear reference to Stahl. This seems apocryphal to me, but perhaps somebody on this board has found it in the archives of the Boston Post or some other likely source.

Hank - Do you have an image of the 1908 Sporting Life Supplement of Washington? I would like to see which image they used of Johnson.

Here is Johnson's PC760 Rose Co. postcard which was also issued in 1908.

I think it was the Horner photo, but since I can't remember where I saw it or when, now I'm not even positive that I've seen a 1908 Washington version. I do have a picture of a 1909 I once owned, and that is the Horner image. Since I can't find reference to a 1908 online, I'm wondering now if it exists. Is there a checklist of them somewhere?

It looks like they didn't worry about which side of the negatives they used. In this 1909, Cantillon and Milan are reversed from the 1908.

Thanks for posting that image from the Sporting Life Newspapers. It definitely looks like they used the same Horner image that the Rose Co. used, except that they reversed it.

Not to get too far off subject, but does anyone know if The Sporting Life actually issued a W601 Supplement of Washington in 1908 or was this image just used in the January 30, 1909 edition of their newspaper?

I know that The Sporting Life issued W601 supplements between 1902 and 1911, but it seems as though they issued all teams in some years (1903, 04, 05, 06 and 09) and only a few teams in others (1902, 07, 08, 10 and 11)

In the case of Milan and Johnson, it looks like they reversed the image so that all of the players are looking towards the center of the image. I am sure that they did this with other players as well. No idea why they reversed the image of Cantillon.
