  • Team Photo IDs Help Thread

    I'd like to take the opportunity to enlist the help of anybody with a good eye for recognizing baseball faces. I've collected many team images from the majors and the minors, primarily from the 19th and early 20th century, and most do not come with the player IDs. Please chime in with suggestions!
    Also note that the team year may be suspect as well, so enlighten me and this community if you have additional information on any of these teams.

    First up: the 1876 Portland (OR) Pioneers. The year is correct, but I've got nothing on the players depicted.

          1888 Fort Worth Panthers. Bill Joyce is depicted in the image, rather obviously, but the rest I still need.

          I contacted the Fort Worth public library and they had the names on the flip side of the cabinet card. I've highlighted the players who later appeared in the Majors. Geiss, curiously, did not appear in a game for this team.

          Top Row, L-R: John Rademacher, Bill Goodenough, Mike O'Connor, Bill Joyce

          Middle Row, L-R: Frank Fudger, Michael Firle, Art Sunday, George Kittle, Dan O'Leary

          Bottom Row, L-R:Emmett Rogers, William Work, Bill Geiss

                    Composite from the year before the team photo posted above. May well assist in the identification process.

                        1890 Portland. This one has been worked on but no consensus opinion has been reached for all players depicted.

                        Top Row, L-R: ?, Jud Smith?, Bill Hassamaer, ?, ?, John Cahill?

                        Middle Row, L-R: George McVey?, ?, ?, Jiggs Parrott?, Tom Parrott?

                        Bottom Row, L-R: Pat Whitaker?, ?
