It's a town team or college team. Could be dozens of them in that region.

Hi drcy,

would you please take a look at my Google doc?

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1...CSxanIAlibUKmU


Thereís a comparison of faces there. the only reason I am trying to figure out if this is a possibility is because of my dadís notes. Amongst his collection he had an 1887 large Indianapolis Hoosier cabinet photograph, Plus nine hoosiers old judge tobacco cards, the 1869 Cincinnati red stockings sheet music booklet, and an 1888 St. Louis Browns Joseph P Hall original cabinet. These items found a new home with someone who loved the game just as much as my dad did. Iím just trying to figure out who these people are, where they came from, and if they have a better home. I love his pieces, but after talking with several collectors and placing a few of his items I understand the meaning that these types of memorabilia pieces have to many people. I want someone to feel what my dad felt

The 1885 Detroit Wolverines Home uniform were white and the road uniform were gray and both had "RED" belts and stockings. I guess that means no Dan Casey.

Damn, just saw this; as a Dartmouth '98 had I seen it earlier I could have helped solve it! Great picture.
