The Knickerbocker Club was formed by members of the Gotham Base Ball Club, which became the first organized club in NY in 1837. Although in existence in the early 1840's, it is generally recognized that the Knickerbocker Club officially formed on September 23, 1845. Wheaton, an attorney in New York City, was an original member of the Gotham Base Ball Club. He also served as Vice President of the Knickerbockers from September of 1845 through the following years elections in May of 1846 and was instrumental in helping formulate the first set of formal rules. He umpired two early Knickerbocker matches, the first recorded baseball match in the United States on October 6th and again on October 23rd 1845. Cartwright, an early member of the Knickerbockers, is often the subject of conjecture when historians discuss baseballs beginnings and its founding members of the first set of written rules. Some accounts identify him as formulating the rules and others have members of the Knickerbockers disputing his involvement. Cartwright was elected as Secretary in 1846 and served as Vice President in 1847 and 1848. He left New York for California in 1849 during the gold rush and eventually moved to Hawaii. Anthony, an early member of the Knickerbocker Club, played in the first Knickerbocker match against an opponent, the New York Club, on June 19, 1846. He was elected Treasurer in 1851 and 1852 and held the position of Vice President in 1856 and 1857. He and his brother, Edward, were the first in New York to manufacture and sell cameras and photographic supplies through their business E & H.T. Anthony & Company. Their company eventually became the largest distributors and suppliers of photographic equipment in the US during the 19th century. Curry, the first elected President of the Knickerbockers in 1845, served as President for the 1846 season as well. He has been credited with assisting in formalizing the original rules of base ball and has also been reported to vehemently dispute Cartwright's involvement in the same. Adams was perhaps the most important figure regarding the development of the early game of base ball. He joined the Knickerbockers in 1846 and was elected Secretary the same year. He played in the first Knickerbocker match against an opponent, the New York Club, on September 23, 1846 and was elected President in 1847. He held that position until 1849 and in 1851 became a Director until 1855. In 1856, he was elected President for a fourth time and retained that position in 1857 and was also elected the President of the first base ball convention, held in New York in 1857. During this meeting he was appointed the head of the Rules Committee which standardized numerous rules including the distance between bases, the distance between the Pitcher's line and Home Base and requiring all matches to be nine innings in length. He was one of two delegates representing the Knickerbocker Club at the first National Association of Base Ball Players convention held in New York in 1858. He was elected president for the sixth and final time of the Knickerbockers in 1861.

The rules of 1882 called for the use of multi-colored uniforms denoting each player’s position. For example, scarlet-and-white-striped shirts and caps were worn by first basemen, while shortstops wore solid maroon. Only the color of the stockings was used to differentiate one club from another. Derisively called “clown costumes,” the experimental outfits were dropped in mid-season, though a few clubs briefly revived the position-oriented design in 1888.

Although an obscure team, several of their players appear on n172 cards, including Joe Werrick, Moxie Hengle, Billy O'Brien, Scrappy Carroll, Charlie Ganzel and possibly Pat Dealey.

Please use this section to contribute to our 19th century team image project. I too will be dumping pictures and text here to be reorganized, sized, trimmed, etc.
And thank you to all of the individuals who contributed to this assembly by just allowing me to copy your pictures and bring them here without even so much as giving you credit. Thank you.
