Default George Leroy "Hooks" Wiltse

I enjoyed all of the great cards and memorabilia folks rolled out when I started a thread on Heinie Zimmerman. (https://www.net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=323636)

Here's the SABR bio for Geoge Leroy "Hooks" Wiltse:
https://sabr.org/bioproj/person/hooks-wiltse/
"A lean six-footer with deep-set eyes and a wad of tobacco usually in his mouth (he reportedly cost himself a victory in a game against the Cincinnati Reds on June 19, 1905, when he swallowed a quid and suffered an upset stomach), Wiltse won in double figures in each of his first eight seasons with the Giants, compiling a 139-90 record and 2.47 ERA over 12 seasons in the major leagues."
Let's see some Wiltses.

Not mine, but one of the Jersey City cards that I need for my team set that I will likely never own. Used to be Leon's (hi Leon) but he sold it with his collection years ago and I snagged an image of it. I believe it is the only known example.

Here's a D303. I just noticed the caption is not for Brooklyn. Wiltse was on the NY Giants through 1914 and Brooklyn in 1915.

Hey guys,

Trivial Trivia....Wiltse (pitching) card missing a DOT after the Y in the N Y caption. This is the only occurence of such an omission in the T206, and T215-1 sets. Check-it-out.

Tres más - and by far the least attractive of any of the cards posted thus far, IMO.

Representing the chewy side of collecting is this E95 Philadelphia Caramel of Wiltse.

I always thought he had a very distinctive face...one you could easily pick out in a crowd.

George needed his E93 Standard Caramel card to be shown.
