Thanks to a bud and fellow member I added these...super pumped for both. LaJoie is highest graded and Evers is second highest graded example...just a tad obsessed at the moment.

Default 1907 Ty Cobb - Fielding

The rare 1907 Dietsche Ty Cobb - Fielding

Only 20 of these graded in total - 8 by SGC and 12 by PSA - I would expect there are a few crossovers in the count, making the likely population around 16 total.

Default 1913-15 Pinkerton "Postcard" Clark Griffith -- Where's my new uniform?

The Old Fox

Clark C. "The Old Fox" Griffith. Pitcher for the Washington Senators in 1912-1914. Debuted with the St. Louis Browns in 1891. 237 wins and 8 saves in 20 MLB seasons. Was 1898 MLB ERA leader. Managed the Chicago White Stockings (1901-1902), the New York Highlanders (1903-1908), the Cincinnati Reds (1909-1911), and the Washington Senators (1912-1920). Was principal owner of the Washington Senators from 1920 until his death in 1955. In 1946, was inducted to the MLB Hall of Fame.

Few individuals in the history of baseball can boast of a career to rival that of Clark Griffith’s. In terms of duration, as a player, manager, and executive, it was one of the longest ever, spanning nearly 70 years. Griffith is the only man in major league history to serve as player, manager, and owner for at least 20 years each.

From his earliest days as a pitcher for money in Hoopeston, Illinois, to his last breath, the Old Fox, as he became fondly known, dedicated his life to baseball. A fiery competitor, he was outspoken, innovative, crafty and resourceful. He played with and against some of the pioneers of the game, was a star during its rowdiest era, managed for two decades, and was the face of baseball in the nation’s capital for over 40 years. Along the way he won 237 games as a major league pitcher, helped to establish the American League, brought Washington its only World Series title, and could name eight U.S. presidents among his many friends.

By the time Griffith became Washington's manager at the start of the 1912 season, his playing days were effectively over. Nevertheless, he rose to the opportunity to make baseball history becoming the first man in baseball history to face one and only one batter in a season, and give up a home run to that batter. The feat was later matched by Milwaukee's Dave Koslo in 1955.

Great card Rick, I used to not be a huge fan of the Cobb Fielding but the simplicity of the design is really a thing of beauty. One of my favs now.

Great pickup Rick,

That card is the the next 1925 Gehrig Exhibit. Should be fetching over 100k soon.

I hope you are right - hard to understand how the highest graded (PSA 6) Ty Cobb - Fielding, sells recently for only $69K at Heritage - while 10-year old refractor cards of basketball players sell for over $1 million in auction after auction...

Too bad this one has that paint chip in the lower left corner

It’s all a process and education. Give it time and the collector/investor shelling out thousands/millions will be migrating our way.

Default Red Faber (HOF) - St. Joseph's College - circa 1906

Red Faber (HOF) pitcher - St. Joseph's College Baseball Team - circa 1906, standing back row, middle, with a baseball in his hand. His biography in SABR notes: "The red-haired Faber apparently had a sporadic and unspectacular high-school baseball career. He attended prep academies associated with colleges in two Mississippi River communities — Sacred Heart, in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, and then St. Joseph’s in Dubuque, Iowa. In 1909, when he was 20 and studying at a Dubuque business school, he joined the college varsity of his prep alma mater, St. Joseph’s." The college offered a four-year college and high school program.

The post card is circa 1906. Although it is postmarked 28 Jan 1908, it is not a divided back (divided back post cards were produced after March 1907), and on the front bottom, the sender wrote, "I think you remember the good old bunch." - indicating the photo is likely from at least two years prior.

Urban "Red" Faber was born in Iowa on 6 Sept 1888, and would be 17 or 18 in the photo, if taken in 1906.

Faber pitched a "perfect game" in the minors in 1910. He developed a sore arm in 1911 and reverted to using the "Spit Ball." Faber was later "grandfathered" as one of 17 players to use the pitch in the major leagues, and was the last American League pitcher to throw it when he retired in 1933.

I'm originally from Worcester, Mass. This ball field was originally called Boulevard Field on Shrewsbury St in Worcester Mass. The ball field is long gone. The parks name was changed to East Park. Currently it's called
Cristoforo Colombo Park.

Default Billy Southworth (HOF) - 1912 Portsmouth Cobblers

Billy Southworth (HOF) - 1912 Portsmouth Cobblers. According to SABR, this was his first professional team. He played 134 games for the Cobblers of the Ohio State League in 1912; he returned the following year, but his contract was purchased halfway through the season by the Cleveland Naps.

Billy Southworth was inducted into the MLB Hall of Fame as a Manager by the Veteran's Committee in 2008.

Rick - I see that you've picked up a ton of PCs that used to be in my PC. That Southworth team PC was one of those that I used to own and is simply awesome.

Same with the 1912-15 (1914?) Boston Daily American PC of Maranville. I sold that one when I picked up this one from c1913:



Admittedly, I'm on the fence on the IDs of a few of your other team PCs, but I love seeing what you've got. Keep 'em coming!

That is a great Maranville Real Photo Postcard.

Is it possible to narrow down the date to 1913 and not 1915 or even later? Maybe by the stamp box or some other mark? I know that the uniforms can give us some clues, but these types of postcards are often taken in Spring Training when it was customary to use uniforms from previous season.

Default 1907-09 Novelty Cutlery PC - Johnny Evers & Germany Schaefer

1907-09 Novelty Cutlery PC - Johnny Evers & Germany Schaefer

Named Captain of the Detroit Tigers in 1907, Germany Schaefer was considered the "Clown Prince" of baseball during his time. Once, with a runner on third and Schaefer on second, he stole first base in an attempt to draw a throw and score the man from third. Pictured below with Johnny Evers during the 1908 World Series. He was traded to Washington in 1909 (throwing water on the theory this set was produced in 1910). NOTE: The last name "Schaefer" is misspelled as "Shaefer" - it was corrected on its PC796 counterpart.

Johnny Evers was considered one of the smartest players of his day. He led his teams to five National League Pennants and three world championships, including a world title with the 1914 "Miracle Braves".

Hi rickalaska - How does the fact that Germany Schaefer was traded to the Washington Senators in 1909 disprove the theory that this set was issued in 1910?

Default 1909 Abilene High School - Dwight Eisenhower

In honor of D-Day (6 June) - 1909 Abilene High School, Abilene, Kansas RPPC w/ future 5-star general and President of the United States, Dwight Eisenhower seated in the middle. His brother Ed is seated at the far right.

Eisenhower once said: "When I was a small boy in Kansas, a friend of mine and I went fishing and as we sat there in the warmth of the summer afternoon on a river bank, we talked about what we wanted to do when we grew up. I told him that I wanted to be a real major league baseball player, a genuine professional like Honus Wagner. My friend said that he'd like to be president of the United States. Neither of us got our wish." - Dwight Eisenhower

Default 1909 Montreal Royals & Newark Indians w/ Joe "Iron Man" McGinnity (HOF)

1909 Montreal Royals & Newark Indians w/ Joe "Iron Man" McGinnity (HOF) - postmarked 19 Aug 1909, from Montreal. Joe "Iron Man" McGinnity (HOF) managed and pitched for the 1909 Newark Indians of the Eastern League. He is pictured third from the far left.

Throwing his first major league pitch at age 28, he won 246 games in just 10 years of service. In August 1903, he pitched and won both sides of a doubleheader, three times that month. He accomplished this feat two other times during his career. In 1904, he won 35 games against just eight losses for the New York Giants. Following his retirement from the majors in 1908, he won 29 games for Newark in 1909, and another 30 games in 1910. At all levels, he won 478 games during his 26-years in baseball.

Cool postcard, but how do you know that McGinnity is the third person on the far left? Is this a published image where the players were identified?

I enlarged the image and compared photos. Newark had two managers - Harry Wolverton, is standing second from left and Joe "Iron Man" McGinnity, is standing third from the left. Easy to narrow it down - logical to look for management in the front row. The 1910 Reach Guide has photos/player names of both 1909 teams (Montreal & Newark). Vintageball.com has a clear photo image of this PC on his website - he also states "Clearly visible is Hall of Famer "Iron Man" McGinnity..."

Thanks for the explanation. I was hoping that it was a published photo to confirm McGinnity’s ID. To me, the images are not nearly clear enough to make a positive ID, but maybe I am being too cautious.

Easy to narrow it down - logical to look for management in the front row. The 1910 Reach Guide has photos/player names of both 1909 teams (Montreal & Newark). Vintageball.com has a clear photo image of this PC on his website - he also states "Clearly visible is Hall of Famer "Iron Man" McGinnity..."
I think that using an artist's depiction of McGinnity (on the baseball card) is not a good way to identify him in a photo. I've attached the 1909 images of McGinnity and Wolverton (from the composite) and a 1910 image of McGinnity. To my eyes, it could as easily be Wolverton, or perhaps someone else entirely. Edited to add: An ebay seller identified Wolverton as the second from the left, but did not identify McGinnity in the image, despite knowing that he was on this team.
