Default Dating a Poster/Broadside - Federal League?

I am trying to date this poster and while it would be nice to prove that it is a Federal League broadside, it certainly could be something as simple as a townball team. Also, the image on the back was cut from something else and pasted on the back, not printed there.

I did some quick research and October 16 landed on a Saturday in 1915 (one of the two Federal League seasons), but this also happened in 1920, 1926, 1937, 1943, and 1948.

I also searched the printing company and found several hits in the 1910s in various directories, but don't see much after then.

Anyway, I would love to get thoughts and opinions.

Thanks!

Chris

I am trying to date this poster

I would say go for it! May I suggest a casual atmosphere, maybe outside seating, some drinks, people watching, etc. Good Luck!

Typeface looks much later to me, though it's been a long time since my dad's letterpress hobby/printing business was front of mind. It certainly could be an FL piece but I'd be much more inclined to go with the 1926 date.

Another thing to consider...if it's FL and thus 1915ish...why would a (presumably) St. Louis team be printing posters 300 miles away in St. Joe?

Also, I believe that the Brooklyn Tip-Tops ballpark was generally known as Washington Park (not League Park).

Found this about a 1918 Tip Top amateur baseball team out of St. Joseph, Missouri playing at a League park.

Default 1918

In 1918, the YMCA was very active in providing support for the troops who were stationed in Europe. The game would have raised a lot of money for the Doughboys.

This game between local the Tip Tops and the All-Stars took place on Saturday October 16, 1915 at League Park in St. Joseph, MO. I would say the poster isn't the Federal League.

The image of the young lad that was cut out and pasted on the back is from an
April 24,1915 issue of Saturday Evening Post Magazine cover. The image on my magazine is approx 9" top to bottom.

That might be it. I wonder if they were playing in 1915. When I saw League Park, I immediately thought Cleveland.

Thanks for all of the responses. Here is the Saturday Evening Post cover from April 1915. Since Saturday landed on October 16 in 1915, I think it would make the most sense that the poster was produced that year. The next time there was a Saturday October 16 was five years later in 1920.
