Just discovered this thread. Incredible photos, a window into history of the great game. I think a lot of the history, events and triumphs of the game's past is lost on many of the fans today. I was always aware of depth of history but never knew much about the details. It is something I've gained a lot more interest in as of late and the learning and research of the game's past has quickly become a big hobby of mine.

1920 Detroit Wolverines Team
I couldn't find any info about this team specifically, but it seems like they could have been part of an organized Negro League. Perhaps they played against or are related to some of the teams listed at Seamheads.com here: Negro League Organizations 1902-23. In any case, it's a great photo and I really like their uniforms. Anybody know more?

Love those team photos. on your 1980 All-star game photo, I counted at least seven future HOF's. Quite an array of talent.
