As a follow up Hal Chase was traded from New York to the White Sox on June 1st of 1913, meaning that the photo used on his Tom Barker card was snapped sometime after this date during the 1913 season, as Hal jumped to the Buffalo team in the Federal League before the start of the 1914 season.

Thought I'd give an edit. The WG5 set has 54 cards in it if you include the score and rules card. I'm assuming the WG6 set is similar but I've never collected those.

Somehow missed this thread entirely in its first two spells of activity...
Excellent insights and information -- thanks, Brian and Pat!
Still looking for more biographical information on Tom Barker himself...

I have a feeling Tom Barker did not exist, and was a creation of the makers of the National Game cards as a marketing idea to further the sales of their game cards after the original production of the cards under the National Game name.

Just a thought,

Brian
