For those of you that thought die-cuts were a modern creation, check out the guy in the back. Beat Upper Deck to it by about 90 years.



I bought the PC because I noticed a Native American (?) player in the line-up. Anyone recognize him?

Tony, thanks. I forget the Johnson's first name but he was a famous photographer in the midwest and from my hometown of Alexandria. That was the main reason I was trying to get it aside from the fact that it was baseball related.

Love the die cut! Who do you think that is, the team owner maybe?

As for the other player in question, no idea - looks like he could be Cuban. Do you have a date on the PC? 1905-1915 range?

Great piece.

Ben,

Your guess is as good as mine, could possibly be an owner. I thought it looked to be from the 1910's. It's not postmarked on back so tough to know for sure. I just thought the Native American/Cuban player looked familiar, but could be my mind playing tricks on me.

Brian,

Here is a scan of the back. Typical PC back for the era.

AZO 4 triangles up is 1904-1918. The divided back means it is after March 1, 1907. So, your 1910's estimate is pretty accurate based on the back. (1907-1918)

This is one half of a stereoview from the 1860s that I have fun showing.
