I can't speak to the authenticity of the poster, but Sept. 22 fell on a Saturday in 1923, 1934 and 1945.

It's not 1922, Bolden didn't own the team then.

Wow! Never saw that before! The Crawfords and the Stars were both around in 1934 and 1945 and Ed Bolden owned the Stars in both years so it's hard to nail down except if we find a box score. If it's '34, what a Crawfords line up that would have been, and Philly had Slim Jones, in the middle of one of the most dominant season in blackball history.

On the Crawfords Wikipedia page, it indicates that they moved from Pittsburgh in 1939 and folded in 1940, which would likely make this a 1934 poster.

I believe the Crawfords existed long after as a semi-pro team.

Don't rely on wikipedia. The Crawfords existed as a top-draw Negro League team through 1936 when Satchel Paige took all the big stars to the Dominican Republic. They limped on through 1938 and sank to semi-pro status. In 1945 they staged a comeback with a few aging stars but were never a contending team again. So in-short, they were indeed around in '45.

1945. I highly doubt they had lights on a field in a small town in 1934 unless they were borrowing the KC Monarch's portable lights. Major leagues didn't have them until '35. Game started at 9:00 pm according to the broadside.
