Default Amarillo Team 1901-07 Era

Posted this a while back in a thread asking for help securing the year of the postcards production, but thought I'd post it here as well.

Amarillo baseball team 1901-07 era...think their first team was in 1905 or 06

Chic Gandil played with Amarillo for a few months in 1906 and it is possible he's in this photo, but impossible to confirm without finding the same photo with a definitive date to it or better yet with players labeled.

Have included a 1907 comp photo of Gandil with the player that I think might be him on the postcard

Saw this at a postcard show years ago and thought it was cool. I have no information about it except what is on the back of the card (I believe what is handwritten is "Made in Hungary"). Quick Google and eBay searches did not turn up much...I saw one golf player for sale on a site based in India. I think this comes under the heading of "rare but not valuable".

Default Two new Folsom Field pickups... one extremely scarce copy.

Hi all,

A while back I had seen an image/scan depicting the stadium dedication game against Utah for Folsom Field (then Colorado Stadium) on November 1, 1924. This was only the fourth game ever played at what was then the "new" campus stadium which was a huge step forward from the small confines of the wooden bleachers of Gamble Field. CU was stepping onto the stage of big time college football. Originally I had reached out to some sources and was told that it was a colorized photo and had only been seen in reproduction format until that point. I however, recognized it as a postcard.

Well... Im excited to share with you that Ive tracked down an original copy of the postcard!

I was doing a little browsing on eBay and just happened across it as it was listed as being Gamble Field. Of course, I knew better! I was able to put in a bid on it and won! As of now I have only confirmed two copies. This is one of the neatest pieces of Buffs history depicting the greatest home field setting in college football nearly 100 years ago.

It seems that each copy was hand colored individually and was most likely done with watercolor or pastel. After a bit of searching I'm excited to finally confirm the existence of this image and thought I'd share it to be enjoyed with everyone else!

The second postcard shows the stadium and gymnasium circa 1920s-early 1930s.

Stay safe all and Sko Buffs!

Default Jesse Haines (HOF) - circa 1911

Jesse Haines (HOF) on a baseball team at a July 4th (circa 1911) Modern Woodmen of America (MWA) event. The player's uniform logo that reads "WUHS" stands for "West Union High School" - about 8 miles from where Jesse grew up in Ohio. Note that the WUHS player's cap and uniform pants are similar to Jesse's. Haines dropped out of school after the 8th grade. Born in 1893, I would guess he was about 18 years old in this photo.

Default 1907 G.W. Hull - Eddie Walsh (HOF)

1907 G.W. Hull - Ed Walsh (HOF) with the original mailing envelope. The 1906 World's Champion Chicago White Sox were known as the "Hitless Wonders" because the team's batting average for the year was only .230, worst in the American League and second-worst in the majors.

Ed Walsh went on to win 40 games (40-15) in 1908. He finished his career with a 1.82 ERA - the lowest of any major league pitcher in history.

Default Ed Walsh (HOF) - Circa 1903

Prior to joining the Chicago White Sox in 1904, Ed Walsh (HOF) was a coal miner in his hometown of Plains, PA. Here he is pictured in the back row with an unidentified team. Is that "coal dust" on his face...having just come from the mine? It's documented he played on the company team, as well as teams from Wilkes-Barre; Mount Carmel; Newark, NJ; and Meriden, CT.

I've seen photos of him with the Mount Carmel, Newark, and Meriden teams, so I know it's not any of them. I suspect this is either the company team, or the Plains (Black Diamonds), or Wilkes-Barre (Barons) team as the RPPC was found near that area.

Note the similar flip in the bangs on both the 1904 Carl Horner rookie photo and this RPPC. The man standing at the far right, may be owner Ernest Landgraf.

Default 1912 Buck Weaver - Max Stein postcard

One of the coolest cards in the hobby, this is Buck Weaver's true Rookie Card - he entered major league baseball in 1912 and this card is clearly stamped "1912" right on the front.

Buck is shown schmoozing with the ladies... Who wouldn't want this as their Rookie Card...

Default George Weiss (HOF)

Two images of George Weiss (HOF) - the one at the right is the well-known "rookie" image of him with the New Haven Colonials in 1914. The one on the left (holding the bat), I would guess pre-dates the other by 3 or 4 years - born in 1894, and based on the ages of the other players, I would guess he was about 16-years old (Circa 1910).

George Weiss built and managed the New York Yankee's farm system (1932-1947) and served as General Manager of the team (1947-1960). During his 28-year affiliation with the Yankees, the team won 15 of 19 world championships.

He retired with the New York Mets in 1966, having put together a large part of the team that would go on to win the 1969 World Series (The "Amazin' Mets).
