Rob I have no idea where the photo shoot occurred. Kenny that's a very cool photo. Either those A's were undersized or Mack was very tall for a catcher.

Default Mack was a tall catcher!

Although Baseball reference lists both Connie Mack and Ty Cobb as 6' 1" tall, other sources list Mack at 6' 2".

Kid Gleason is listed at 5' 7" tall. Eddie Collins was 5' 9". Zack Wheat was listed at 5' 10 " tall.

Based on the fact that the photo has Mack towering over the other players, makes me suspect that perhaps he is standing on the higher end of an incline.

Over the weekend, from the Goldin Auction I picked up a "Richter's History of Records of Baseball" inscribed in 1914 by Francis Richter to Roy A. Thomas, who was more than a journeyman (in my opinion) center fielder for the Phillies from 1898 through 1911 (with a end of year stint for the Pirates in 1908 and a year with the Boston Doves in 1909), who then coached with Penn, where he had played collegiate ball. The lot included a photo of him in his Penn uniform. I am searching to see if there is a base ball of any type for him. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!!
