I've always really liked the close-up shots that he did.

The ones from the 1910s, however, mostly seem to have the majority of the faces intact.

Really cool.
Are you saying that you prefer the extreme close-ups of 1913 to those from 1927? And that the reason is that Conlon cropped the 1927 Yankees in the camera?

Have you ever thought about what a Charles Conlon photographic exhibition would look like?

I’ve put together an exhibition that I’m about to pitch to various museums across the country. If you would like to see it, I’d be happy to send you a private link to view it. Your feedback would be most appreciated.

Can you please explain how you approached curating the contents of the exhibition?

The key to understanding Conlon is that nearly all of his work was done on assignment—he was always shooting what Spalding’s Guide wanted and very rarely what interested him as a photographer. There were a series of photographic essays, however, that explored the aging ‘batting eyes’ of his subjects, and the batting grips of leading sluggers and the differences in the hands of catchers, infielders, and outfielders. The eyes and hands, in particular, were very innovative portraits, and I thought it was important for viewers to see those prints and what Conlon was trying to achieve with that portraiture.

Other sections explore action photography—Conlon employed a few tricks and would, for example, try to capture a bat’s movement as it slows down near the end of a swing—and Conlon’s relationships with Mathewson, McGraw, and others, which set him apart from other photographers.

This is Tris Speaker’s batting grip. Conlon took it to show how Speaker held his lead shoulder. You’ll never look at a T206 of Speaker the same way again.

I keep all my type 1 Conlons in this neat little folder I purchased (it was in my price range):
