Default Embossed Postcards Players Identified.

Maybe this is old news for some but until now I never knew the identity of the players on these embossed postcards from the 1910s. Includes an image of a Hall of Famer!

The first image is George Winter, Red Sox, 1901 -1908

Good detective work Jim!

I've actually had a few of these in my hands at flea markets and didn't buy them because I didn't know their time frame or who the player was. Guess we do now.

Thanks for posting

Jantz

Interesting that they changed the angle of Oliver Pickering's bat -- probably to make it more prominent.

Just curious, do you think they all came from the same photographic source? Same year? Is there any list of how many were made for a complete set?

Answering my own post. Thought the first one looked familiar. There's a Red Belt with the same image (of Jimmy Collins). Robert S. identified the Red Belt PCs a while back: http://www.vintageball.com/RedBelt.html

The card depicting two players with one sliding is the same image as the Morgan "Red Belt" series card, that one is obvious that it depicts HOFer Jimmy Collins.

I'd love to know the identity of the player on this one...I have obtained a few of these cards stamped with Gagnier SS Lincoln...I'm assuming that Ed Gagnier bought up a bunch of these embossed cards and had them stamped so he could give them out.

Great stuff everybody! I was looking closer at the batter and catcher PC and noticed a "N Y" across the chest of the batter. Either Highlanders or '05 Giants? Interesting how all of the other cards in the set have been made generic with no insignia or other identifying details, except for this one. I found a photo from '08 Hilltop Park that has some similarities, but may be stretch.

Hey Jim/others,

I had the complete set of 1907 Morgan Stationary color postcards & a number of the embossed cards.

The Jimmy Collins Morgan Stationary photo shows him making a play at 2nd base but he is not wearing baseball spikes, he is actually wearing street shoes!

Look at the color postcard in this thread...

Paul

I believe all of the other postcards in the set have been identified. The Batter and Catcher is the only one left. If any one recognizes the photo, setting, etc. please jump in. I included a 1908 Hilltop photo (knowing that it is NOT the same, but very similar in idea) with the "N Y" on the batters uniform. Probably a stretch since the issue is cataloged as 1906, assuming 1905 photos. Hopefully, this is a starting point to ID the last postcard in the set.

Default Catcher batter embossed PC

The batter bears a striking resemblance to Red Murray. He had an unusual batting stance as well. Note the unusual position of the rear leg in both the PC and this photo.
