Default Sheckard studio portrait update

Posted By: Keith O'Leary

I got back from a week in Vegas Wednesday morning and had some wonderful news waiting for me from Scott Jeter.

Thanks to his tireless help and detective work (I can't thank him enough), the riddle of my Walinger studio portrait has been solved. In additon to Scott, I'd like to thank the following people for all their help as well (in no particular order, but all supplied valuable information to the quest)...Bob Hoie, Marshall Fogel, TJ from TJs Collectibles, Jim Nitz, Ted (BlackSoxFan), Gary Sheckard,
Scott Mosley, Bill Hickman, Freddy Berowski (Baseball HOF), David Rudd, Barry Sloate, and Mark Armour. Heres the proof Scott supplied that convinced me.

He first identified the medal by finding Nick Altrock's 1906 Chicago White Sox medal (and I looked and looked). Here that is along with the one from my photo (if you look close enough, you can make out "White Sox" in mine).

Chicago White Sox from 1904 - 1916 and finished his career with the Boston Braves in 1917. My guess is it was taken very early in his career, probably shortly after the 1906 season.

Again, thanks to all, I'm very happy its been identified. Keith

Always happy to help when I can! You got yourself a gem of a photo. It'll probably bring a nice piece of change if you ever decide to part with it!

Thanks for the props Scott, but in all seriousness, I really didn't do anything except give you what you thought was bad news! Hehe. I appreciate the opportunity to help you out.

Regards,

Black Sox Fan
