Default Nebraska Indians advertisement

Interesting ad I found where Guy Green is advertising for players for his Nebraska Indians team. He says at the bottom of the ad that he will give a free 4 color team postcard to anyone who gives him a lead on a player...I imagine it must have been this postcard.

Actually I figured out how to embed it, but it's kind of small.



Found another...this one for the 1906 season

"Absolutely sober and gentlemanly both on and off the field"... guess this would rule out many of today's best players!

Seriously... I can't imagine a time when a free postcard was enough of an incentive for anyone to provide viable leads on a potential player. Nowadays of course, this rare vintage postcard is stunning... but back in the day, seems like very little payoff for lots of effort!

Great piece, Dan!

Can you identify the tribe that blonde-headed fellow on the front row hails from?

That blonde-headed fellow would go on to be one of the most famous boxing announcers in the history of the sport...he is now in the Boxing Hall of Fame. His name is Dan Tobey and he hails from Ulysses, Nebraska. If you've seen any boxing movie pre-1950 chances are he was in it as the ring announcer.

Default 1912 Nebraska Indians Postcard

wondering if Guy Green's "free postcard" offer was still on the table in 1912-1913, and whether any of the players depicted on this postcard were a direct result of the solicited "leads".

Green no longer owned the team by then, but they kept the name...the new owners were the Beltzer Brothers (Well known amongst Husker baseball fans)...I have little doubt that they ran the team in much the same way that Green did as evidenced by the number of postcards they sold while they owned the team...The Nebraska Indians really went downhill when they sold the team in 1917...of course WWI killed off a lot of semi-pro and minor league baseball teams....they did continue through the 1920's to early 30's, but the Depression did the team in for good.

Nice postcard btw...do you collect the Nebraska Indians?

edited to add: That I believe that Jesse Youngdeer is pictured on your postcard. He was a teammate of Jim Thorpe at Carlisle ...he was a big star in those days so he may be the fellow on the bench with the blanket around him.

thanks for the historical info regarding the Indians' ownership.

I don't collect the Nebraska Indians specifically, but I do have one or two other postcards featuring them as well as the posted example, which happens to be one of my personal favorites amongst the many postcards I've acquired over the years.

I'd love to see the others if you get a chance to post them. I have 15 different Nebraska Indians postcards and there are two that I have seen that I don't yet own. I am looking to see if there are others I am missing.

Thanks,
Dan
