Thank you so very much for posting these fabulous, fantastic, glorious images. This is eye candy of a most supreme plane. God will amply reward you for liberating these beauties from their former dungeons of obscurity, where they were languishing!
On behalf of baseball fans everywhere, I thank you from the bottom of my black little heart. Thank you a million times for sharing these glorious images of our addiction.
This is glory. The Power and The Glory.

Still called the New York Highlanders, they would become the New York Yankees starting in 1913.

"Thank you so very much for posting these fabulous, fantastic, glorious images..."
You bet Bill, not a problem. I'd been sitting on a lot of these images for too long. Also, it took some time to touch-up and in some cases, rejoin separate images back to a single cohesive picture....which is what I did today to that great picture that you posted of the 1914 World
Unfortunately....I basically posted everything I had in my collection. However, I'm still digging for more...and when I find them...I'll be sure to share.

Wow, just saw this thread for the first time. These shots are spectacular !
Thanks BS !
Forgive me if I keep repeating myself. I just cannot get enough of these enlarged, pristine images. And I don't think I ever will. To see these images in enlarged size, in such gorgeous, pristine resolution, is like coming across a pot of gold coins just sitting in the middle of the road, with no one else to claim it.
I search far and wide to find this level of baseball beauty, but can seldom ever find them. I've said it before, and please forgive the comparison, but I find these images from a bygone era more psychologically exciting and compelling than porn. Baseball was my first childhood passion. And these images feed that childhood passion. These shots are the most seductive images in the world. They create the illusion of permanence. They bridge the timeless abyss between then and now. And that bridge is indeed timeless, and precious.
I especially savor the enlarged, panoramic shots of the stadiums. Is there anything more beautiful than a ballpark, packed with fans?
I would love it if we can ever discover the enlarged, panoramic photo of the Tim Murnane death benefit game. And the 1929 A's. The team photos have special historical value.
I spent my youth as a kid poring over baseball books in libraries, and in my room. And now, these images re-create that illusion of continuity, a bridge to our collective pasts, as if the past is still here alive with us. And these enlarged images are so 'real' that they let me 'time-travel' back to those special times. I am grateful beyond what words can tell.
This thread is such a treasure, and not only because I am obsessed with baseball photos. Just have amazing inherent value of a culture that can never have a value placed on it.

This is some work of art, thank you BSMILE. Really digging the great shots of the parks, some I have never seen in that much fullness. More old park pics to add to my collection.
Here's a spring training picture of the 1936 Chicago White Sox. There was a big tear in this originally...but I worked on it for a while. More to come later...
