  • Old-Timer's Day - Shea Stadium - June 23, 1963
    I really wish that all these Old-Timer's were filmed. Hank Greenberg in a full Tigers uni...how classic!

    Old-Timers Day: June 23, 1963, Polo Grounds. L-R: unidentified, Joe McCarthy, Hank Greenberg, Bill Dickey, Frankie Frisch, Zack Wheat, Max Carey, Sam Rice, Carl Hubbell, Casey Stengel. The NL beat the AL in 2 innings, 8-0. (New York Times, June 23, 1963, pp. 158.)

    Great pic, BSmile!...I love Old-Timers Day shots! And this is a real good one!

    I can't believe how "young" Edd Roush looks. And I wonder why he has a Giants uniform on (especially a SF Giants uniform) instead of a Reds uniform.

    Great job on the identifications, too (Bill...was that you?). That Cardinal does look like Hornsby, but I agree...it's definitely Frisch. Hornsby died in January '63 (I think I mentioned before that I met Hornsby a couple times in the early '60's...he was friends with my grandfather and they used to go the the Arlington Park Race Track together).

    • Ty Cobb - April 1931 - San Francisco, CA
      The Georgia Peach Goes To Work On The Apple
      Here's a wonderful, large-scale picture of Ty at an exhibition in 1931. I get the feeling that he was STILL the best hitter in the entire park that day...even in a suit and dress shoes. Included is the original backing tag to the photo.

      • 1926 Detroit Tigers Team
        I don't know the specific year of this great team portrait. The only info I have is that it's the Tigers and Ty was the manager at time. So I listed 1921-1926. I'm guessing that this is a question easily answered by the BBF faithful. (Looks like 1926 seems to be the answer)

        1926 Detroit Tigers; 79-75, .513, 6th Place, 12 g behind---BB-Reference---Player identifications provided by Gary Livacari (GaryL), and Bill Burgess.

        Top Row: L-R: Johnny Neun (1B), Al (Red) Wingo (OF), unidentified, Ken Holloway (P), George Smith (P), Lu Blue (1B), Fred Haney (3B), Charlie Gehringer (2B), Bob Fothergill (OF).

        Middle Row: L-R: Ed Wells (P), Harry Heilmann (RF), unidentified, unidentified, Ty Cobb (Mgr./CF), Jackie Tavener (SS), Rip Collins (P), Ray Hayworth (C), Heinie Manush (LF).

        Bottom Row: L-R: Earl Whitehill (P), George 'Hooks' Dauss (P), Johnny Bassler (C), Lil Stoner (P), Larry Woodall (C).

        • Joe DiMaggio - Late 1940's

          Here's a great, super-large photo of Joe in full uniform, including his jacket. I'm not really sure on the exact year...but it appears to be post WW2 at least...it could even be 1950-51. BTW, awesome work on the Tigers/Cobb pic ID's!

          • Ted Williams in the Military - Spring 1943
            With the 1st Platoon, Company "B", 25th Battalion
            Ted is 3rd row from the top, 6th from the left.

You can see so much more in your edited shots. I said it once and I'll repeat myself. If you're not in the photo-editing business, you're losing a fortune.

I'm more than happy to contribute to what is the best historical baseball website on the planet. It's my honor to be a part of it. And yes, there's even more to come.

As I've said before, this may very well be the best collection of historical baseball team pictures - with most of them identified - in existence! If there's a better collection somewhere, I'd like to know where it is!

Cheers to all of us for our collective efforts...that bring truth and clarity to the history of baseball.
