Default Help with Jackson and Wagner ID's

A new member contacted me about these pictures/photos. Jackson and Wagner are the suspects. Thoughts?

It means you are the new member and the answer is no.

Did either attend Polytechnic Institute in New York? No.

Beyond that no one in the photo looks like either of the two, that is a college neither of them went to. The famously illiterate Jackson didn't go to college, much less up to one up North.

However, the Polytechnic Institute is now New York University's engineering school, so you can say that's sort of an NYU baseball team-- and college baseball photos are definitely collectible.

There was a Gilbert Polytechnic Institute in Pennsylvania from the mid 1880s through the early 1920s. Honus was from Pennsylvania. I compared his face to his Warner and Patterson photos and there is a resemblance.

No. Honus dropped out of school at age 12. Wikipedia is your friend.

Correction: Wikipedia is not your friend. How long does it take for researchers or “Wikipedia’s” to actually correct and edit and upload the proper information that the public posts to that site? Honus went to school until he was 13 or 14 and then he worked at his brothers barbershop. However many baseball players at that time played for colleges, clubs and leagues of schools they didn’t attend school etc.

I do want to clarify that I am the new member. I reached out to the site via a couple of close researcher friends. I have a tobacco era through dead ball era baseball collection that my dad left me when I was a kid after he died. I was fortunate enough to identify most of my pieces and place them in new homes with people who too are passionate about baseball. I’m simply trying to identify my last few pieces. I have about five or six other cabinet photographs as well. I have a comparison photos of Honus with the above picture. The picture of Joe Jackson is actually from a cabinet photo of a team called the Orphan boys. I don’t know if either is Honus or Joe however the people I’ve researched with felt it was the logical Lead. When I reached out to the site Leon offered to post this for me. I will post the comparison photos. I’m just looking for help with my research
