1935 Dodgers Team Stats
Here's Casey Stengel in his 2nd year of managing a big league club, the Brooklyn Dodgers. The team would finish 5th, which would be the highest standing Casey achieved managing a MLB team until he skippered the 1949 Yankees...and we all know how that wound up.

I was sent this intriguing photo of the Detroit Tigers and asked to identify the year. I'm stumped. Any ideas?
Three players are wearing uniforms from 1905-1907. But the hats don't match and no Cobb or Crawford.

It never occurred to me that they might be a minor league team with permission to use the same uniform designs of the parent major league team.
Good surmising, BSmile.

Just when I thought I'd seen every panoramic. Amazing sweaters too!
(edit: Although this pic is commonly thought of as the '08 Cubs, it is in fact the '10 team. Read the further postings...)

"I'm finding guys in there that weren't on the '08 team, but were on the '09 and/or '10 team (e.g., Jimmy Archer, Tom Needham, King Cole, Ginger Beaumont, Chick Frazer). Are you sure of the '08 year...or could it be one of those confusing Spring training photos that we can't verify the exact year?
I essentially responded that my source lists 1908 as the date, but that could be wrong. It has certainly happened more than a few times in the past.
One thing I did notice but hadn't mentioned is that based on the signs, it appears the photo was taken in Boston (or Massachusetts in any case)
Any other thoughts?
It does appear to be the 1910 pennant-winning team.

My guess is that the poster was issued in 1910 to celebrate not only the '06-07-08 teams, but the new league champs of 1910 as well (albeit prior to the 1910 World Series). For many years now, that poster has been attributed to what I now feel is the wrong year, 1908.

Why isn't the 1910 Cubs shown in full size? My heart jumped when I thought we might be down-sized again.
