Baseball-Reference.com has his name listed as Mickey Doolin.

What am I missing here ?

So, don't have any regrets. These current "crazy" prices on Cobb's (and, other major T206 stars), in my opinion will not continue. Prices will eventually fall back to normal.

And, thanks for the kind words.

Now I, myself am confused. One source says his name is spelled "Doolin" and another source says the correct spelling is "Doolan".

We know that the T3 cards were printed after the T206 cards. So, did American Litho finally get it right when they printed the T3's ?

Ted & Jerry,

Whoever wrote his Wiki thinks his name was Doolin. I'm guessing they did the research and know the story.

Scot

Mickey Doolin Wiki:

Michael Joseph "Mickey" Doolin (May 7, 1880 in Ashland, Pennsylvania November 1, 1951 in Orlando, Florida), was a professional baseball player who played shortstop in the Major Leagues from 1905 to 1918. During his career, he played for the Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago Whales, Chicago Cubs, New York Giants, and Brooklyn Robins. His name is often misspelled as "Doolan" due to many of his baseball cards being misspelled.

What do you call it when a series of cards initially has a player's name correct and then creates an error thinking they are making a correction of a perceived error that was not really an error?

Error created through erroneous correction (ECTEC)?

My curiosity concerning the Doolan/Doolin confusion started with trying to establish what happened and why there are two 1908-09 Rose Company postcards of the same person. The Doolin was published in the initial issuance (1908) the Doolan sometime later. Why the change? Why issue another card?
In trying to analyze this unusual case I find the 1909 T206 checklist with the same problem. So being there are a million or so T206 collectors perhaps.......
The baseball ref states: Doolin - SABR spells it: Doolan - Wiki=Doolin Rose Co. makes costly change of printing another card to go from Doolin to Doolan. T206 has both.
There must be some logical conclusion to this dilemma.

Does anyone have old box scores to see how they spelled his name?

This is interesting. It never even occurred to me that Doolin could be correct because his name is spelled "Doolan" on both of these cards from 1914-1916. I see that Baseball Reference has it as Doolin.

From baseball reference:
Name Note: born Michael Joseph Doolittle, adopted surname sometimes spelled Doolan

So maybe its both or he changed his name a second time as Doolin is close to Dooin and he didn't want anyone to confuse him with Red Dooin.
