    1907 Newark Pitcher Al Kellogg does not include Kellogg's minor league record for 1906 or 1907, but Sporting Life indicates that he had pitched for Providence in 1906, and then signed with Newark for the 1907 season. He was released by the Newark team in May and signed with the team in Bridgeport. This image is from a 1908 edition of the Newark Evening Star, and accompanied a description of the success that he was having that season pitching for the Scranton team in the New York State League.

      1910 Jersey City 2B George Wheeler
      This photo is currently available at RMY Auctions, though Wheeler is called "Gus" in the auction listing. He played for Jersey City during part of the 1910 season, and also for two other minor league teams and the Cincinnati Reds. His three games with the Reds were between July 27th and August 3rd, and it is apparently during this time that the photo was taken with Wheeler wearing his Jersey City sweater. He played the entire 1911 season for the Skeeters, and part of the 1912 season.

          Champions of the Atlantic League

          I had previously misidentified the top photo as the 1902 Newark Sailors, but the presence of Oyster Burns clearly makes this the 1896 team. The photo below, of that same team, is currently available on ebay.

          Top Row (L-R): Eddie Daley (3B), Rasty Wright (CF), Jack Rothfuss (1B).
          Middle Row (L-R): Unknown, Jim Gilman (2B), Oyster Burns (LF), Bill Heine (SS), Unknown.
          Bottom Row (L-R): Unknown, Edward Lloyd (P), Unknown.
