1968-1971 Phillies - Larry Hisle.

Photos from any of those years would be welcome.


Thank You.

This photo of Padgett in a Phillies uniform is from the Pottstown (PA) Mercury of April 16, 1947.

Yes, the Bass image is new. If a photo is on baseball-reference, but the player is still on tnfoto's missing player list, the bb-ref photo is almost certainly incorrect (or at the very least has significant unanswered question).

I am happy to answer any questions about missing player research and alway happy to have some more diggers!

My experience has found the following resources very good for photo searching:

Searching old newspapers:
newspapers.com, genealogybank.com, newspapers.google.com, newspaperarchive.com and other newspaper sites.

Ancestry.com
I've found quite a few photos on here, digging through family trees and old passport photos

Contacting local genealogical and historical societies
These are particularly good to contact if the player in question was from a specific area and spent a lot of time there. This is how I got started on this fascinating search. I wanted to write a SABR bio for Bob McKinney, a 2 gamer for the 1901 Philadelphia Athletics, one of two (now three) McKinneys (my surname) in major league history. He was from McSherrystown, Pennsylvania and one of my research strategies involved contacting the Hanover Area Historical Society, and the archivist there was kind enough to send some photocopies from an area history, that included a nice team photo of a local club that featured Bob McKinney. Turns out there was no known photo and that was my first find.

If the Missing Player List entry has a CAUTION: tag in one of the last two cells, there has probably been one or more submission for that player in the past, which further research has proven to be a false lead.

We're down to the really tough ones now, especially among managers, so when I find a "new" image, I'm always skeptical at first until I can verify.

I found this photo of John Donnelly after review TNFoto's list and noticing Donnelly's name (which wasn't in my records).

Thankfully, a quick search for his obit yielded a photo. It appeared in the December 25, 1913 Minneapolis Star Tribune.

That piping around the neck is distinctive of the Phillies 1946 season. It was dropped for the 1947 regular season, so perhaps this photo is from 1947 Spring Training and the new uniform was unveiled on Opening Day. The Phillies have done this (new uniform unveiling on Opening Day) a couple of other times in their history (1950 and 1992).

Nice photo! Thank You!!. Hisle would later become a two-time A.L. all-star and an American League RBI champion with the Minnesota Twins (1977)..

Brian Snyder A's 1989
 
1 Attachment(s)
Brian Snyder was a left-hander out of Flemington, New Jersey (famous for Flemington Furs, which I often saw advertised when rding on Route 22 from New York to Philadelphia). After bouncing around with a couple of organizations he finally got a major league shot with the Mariners in 1985. The M's staff was wracked by injuries that year, and they wound up using 21 pitchers. Snyder got into 17 games, six of them starts, and went 1-2, 6.37 with 1 save in just over 35 innings. He surfaced again with the juicy 1989 A's, getting less than an inning of ML work before disappearing forever. He made the '86 Topps set with Seattle but until recently the only major league image of him with Oakland was a tiny, blurred glimpse in the back row of a team photo. The attached shot is black and white and not terribly big, but the quality is quite good. I found it on a page devoted to major leaguers from Clemson University.

I should've mentioned that I kinda wanted to stick with TOPPS Vault images but I appreciate guys' efforts.


Also, does anybody have a Topps Vault image of Chuck Harrison of the 1971 Royals, too?


Thanks a million to everybody!

There are two images of this guy in the newest Ebay listings from the Vault. Both are identified as Sid Monge, whom he clearly isn't. I'm thinking Mike Overy. Yes?
