Default Western Association Old Judges

In another thread, the scarcity of 1888 and 1889 Western Association Old Judges was discussed. The 1888 cards are quite scarce and the 1889 cards are scarcer than both National League and American Association cards, the ones that make up a majority of the 1889 issue. I thought it would be fun to ask people to post their Western Association Old Judges, if they have any. I am out now, but will post some later too. Have at it guys!

Default Denvers

I like this Klusman because it is a triple-variation card:

Version A: "Milwaukee" caption; "MILWAUKEE" on shirt
Version B: Handwritten "Denver" caption; "MILWAUKEE" partially blocked-out on shirt but still visible
Version C (the one you're looking at): Typeset "Denvers" caption; "MILWAUKEE" fully blocked-out on shirt

I can't think of too many other triple-variation cards!

Hoffman is probably the most difficult Denver subject (although the most difficult pose is surely the recently confirmed Dave Rowe portrait).

Keep on educating guys! Love the posts. I have increased my n172 holdings to a total of 6. Plus 1 n174. I want to add an n173 in the near future.

Sorry for the multiple posts. I'm not sure how to do multiple photos on one post.

Great cards, Jay and Scott!

Here are my eight Western Association cards, the three 1888s in the top row and the five 1889s on the bottom row. They're from seven different teams, with two St. Pauls. They're all raw, so I just slapped them on the scanner bed. (Well, I didn't literally slap them.)

Great cards David! We should see if we can get a full run of the WA teams from both years. We are half way there in 1888, which will be the tough one.

Oh man, Jay. Where did you get the Rowe Denver portrait? I thought the only copy was locked-up in the Denver Public Library collection!

Wait a minute -- may be confusing poses . . .

Yep here's the one I was thinking of:
