Default 1914 Colonels with George Weiss and other Pre-Rookie RPPC's

Recent pick up which I am told, corroborated by a foremost rookie collector, is George Weiss. He (far left in regular clothes) made the HOF as an executive in 1971. It is my understanding there are at least a few of these known. Would love to see some other pre-rookie HOF rppc's if anyone has any they would like to share. It's interesting seeing our HOF'ers in their very early days.

Leon -

Nice grab! I have the same New Haven Colonials PC as yours (one of the few known examples).

I'll try not to hijack this thread with all the pre-rookie HOF RPPC's in my collection...but here's one that I've only shown once before, so it might be new to a few folks. Also, along the same lines, it's a postcard of a baseball HOF executive really early in his career.

Warren Giles - coach of the 1918 Moline HS Basketball Team:

Derek,

I would direct you to the second player from the right in the front row. Hint: he is the older brother of two Hall of Famers that played primarily for the Pirates.

If it's him, that's awesome! If not, he's a pretty good look-alike! Any facial recognition guys take a look at it yet?

Derek,

Not trying to sound cocky or arrogant, but I don't need a facial recognition guy. I've seen enough pictures of Paul Waner to know it's him.
