  • BSmile-Amazing, simply amazing, thank you. :bowdown:
    They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

    • 1937 All-Star Game - July 7 - Washington D.C.
      I really love this picture, so I played around with coloring it (from a great b&w copy). Fully colorizing the grandstands etc. would be nearly impossible, so this is what I have thus far. Anyways, from left to right:Lou Gehrig, Joe Cronin, Bill Dickey, Joe DiMaggio, Charlie Gehringer, Jimmie Foxx & Hank Greenberg

      I do have several pics on the backburner in various stages of completion...when they're ready, I'll post them...hopefully soon (including some pano's).

        • 1911 Brooklyn Dodgers Team
          And a HUGE redo of post #1...I love this pic!

          That 1911 Brooklyn picture is fantastic...that has to be the best in the entire collection. Since this is the picture that started us off, I'm going to spend time on it to get some more names. In addition to Wheat and Rucker, off the top of my head I see Jake Daubert, Otto Miller, Bill Dahlen, Hy Myers.

          Dolly Stark is on this team...he became a well known umpire after his playing days. I'll try to locate him for sure.

          QUOTE=Melottfan;1513447]To GaryL:


          True Dolly Stark did play for the Superbas. But I believe you're mistaken him
          for the NL umpire of the 1920's-1930's. Dolly Stark the player was shot to death at a watering hole(saloon?, during prohibition?), which he owned, on December 1, 1924 in Memphis TN. He is buried in Elmwood Cemetary in Memphis. His first name was Monroe. The NL umpire, "Dolly" Stark's first name was Albert. He died at 71 on August 24, 1969 in New York City.[/QUOTE]

          Actually no. It's a bit confusing though...from baseball-reference:

          Los Angeles Dodgers (1958 - 2009)
          Brooklyn Dodgers (1911, 1912, 1932 - 1957)
          Brooklyn Robins (1914 - 1931)
          Brooklyn Superbas (1899 - 1910, 1913)
          Brooklyn Bridegrooms (1888 - 1890, 1896 - 1898)
          Brooklyn Grooms (1891 - 1895)
          Brooklyn Grays (1885 - 1887)
          Brooklyn Atlantics (1884)

          So technically, they were the first team called the "Brooklyn Dodgers"

          • Who is this?

            Can you guys name the team and any of the players?

            Or is it the Cardinals?

            • Whoa!

              If you can get by the color can you tell who these teams are?

                  "Can you guys name the team and any of the players?"

                  Here's that same St. Louis Browns photo on the 1918 TSN Record Book

I'm currently researching Ray Chapman for a book and am particularly trying to track down images. This is one photo I hadn't seen before.
                          Glad you've enjoyed them mollylawless!
                          Ironically, I'm working on a better version of that picture. It's in my "On-Deck" file folder of unedited pic's. I'll be posting the whole image soon but here's a slice of that pano (with Ray) that I just edited:

                          Is this a technically challenging procedure?

                          Actually Bill, I've just tracked down much better/larger, original state versions of some of these pics (including the '16 Indians pic). So I'm not really working any special magic as such (strictly in regard to resizing up). Although, I have found some photos that are HUGE, that I've then resized down to a merely extremly large size (which of course, looks great!). There isn't really a way to greatly enlarge a photo without losing details, keeping perspective in mind. Like if you're looking at a good billboard from a distance, looks good and sharp/normal. Get right on top of it...and now you're staring at large pixels and blobs of color. You get the idea....

                            As promised, a new, larger version of post #10. I love how Tuck Turner was crudely cut/paste into the photo back then. I wonder who he covering up? Not to mention that the person who did it put him in backwards! Anyways...Larry the Dog rules!

Sadly, I have to drop the resolution a bit on most of them so I can post them here...oh well. It would be nice to have at least a 2MB limit per picture...
