      This photo of Dummy Taylor was published in a newspaper in 1904, but he is wearing the Giants' uniform of either 1901 or 1902.

          Danny Murphy broke into the majors in 1900 with the Giants, playing 22 games that year and 5 games with them in 1901. He jumped to the American League prior to the 1902 season, and played 12 years for the Philadelphia Athletics before completing his major league career in the Federal League.

          Wall appeared in just 4 games with the Giants in 1901, and had 4 hits in 8 at-bats.

            Cuban touring team of the 1900-1901 off-season

            The Brooklyn Superbas and the New York Giants visited Cuba after the 1900 season to play a series of games. The Giants supplemented their roster with Tom O'Brien, who had been a Giant outfielder in 1899 but played for Pittsburg in 1900. Someone decided to play a practical joke on O'Brien and Kid Gleason, and told them that they could minimize seasickness by ingesting large quantities of sea water. Although Gleason was able to recover from the resulting illness, O'Brien drank so much salt water that he died in February, 1901, from the damage to his internal organs.

                      (This photo dates from either 1901 or 1902; it's difficult to differentiate the uniforms from those two seasons.)

                        An early newspaper portrait of Christy Mathewson in what appears to be the 1901 Giants' uniform. (This photo was in a 1903 newspaper.)
                        His first no-hitter was accomplished while a member of the Norfolk minor league team in 1900, and his second came for the Giants on July 15, 1901, against the St. Louis Cardinals.
