Default American Indian Baseball Player Poster Project - Help with Some Player Images Needed

I decided to start a project of trying to put together a 18x24 (or larger) poster of some American Indian baseball players that I hope to eventually print and frame. Being of American Indian ancestry and a baseball fan I thought this would be a cool project. I thought this might be one sports related item my wife would let me put up in our place!

If anyone has non-baseball card images of the following players (Bill Phyle, Louis LeRoy, Ed Summers, Moses Yellow Horse, Jack Aker, or Gene Locklear) they'd be willing to share I'd much appreciate it. If you can scan and send a jpg of the photo in the largest size digital file possible to (deweystgermaine AT gmail DOT com) that would be great.

I am going to look for a free online site that will help me create the poster once I get enough images. I have never tried anything like this so I'll see how it turns out.

We have sold some nice Moses Yellow Horse in the past at RMY Auctions (feel free to use the ones from the site) and I have one in my personal collection but it is smaller, however you would be free to use that as well and I can get you a scan.

Here's an obscure player who wasn't on your list. Ed Pinnance was a Canadian First Nation ballplayer, born on Walpole Island, Ontario, who pitched in a couple of games for the Philadelphia Athletics late in the 1903 season (making him a teammate of Chief Charles Albert Bender).

Here's another obscure player--Lou Bruce, a Mohawk originally from upstate New York who appeared in 30 games with the Athletics in 1904, mostly as an outfielder but also as a pitcher. He went to spring training with them in 1905 (when I suspect this picture was taken), but did not make the team that year.

Jim Bluejacket had a Shawnee mother and an Irish-American father. He pitched for the Brooklyn Brookfeds/Tip-Tops of the Federal League in 1914-1915, and a few games for the Cincinnati Reds in 1916.

Thanks for Bruce and Bluejacket images. I have one of Bluejacket already but not one of Bruce.

Here goes a working draft of the poster project I've been doing with the help of PosterMyWall.com. I've had to arrange the pics kinda like a puzzle based on the size and shape of the images. Let me know what you think. Any feedback is appreciated.
