Cool Ruth RPPC, missed that one on ebay! Here's a few new photos I got yesterday:

First are two 1919 snapshots of Jim Bottomley (pictured at right in both photos). These snapshots show Jim as a teenager playing semi-professional baseball for the F G Aces. Soon after, Jim was discovered by Branch Rickey and signed with the St. Louis Cardinals.

Next is a cool 1922 photograph (5.5" x 3.5") of four Omaha Buffaloes players. Seated from left to right are: George Grantham, Heinie Manush, James Wilcox & Pug Griffin

Thanks for the cool photos Derek!
