Here’s the reverse side of the postcard featuring the 1908 Manitowoc, Wisconsin, ball club and its star pitcher/outfielder, George H. Wilson. Dan Yaw doesn’t know the identity of the sender, “Jack,” who could be one of the players, a player’s relative, just a fan in Manitowoc….who knows? But maybe the addressee, Otto Foerster of Sheboygan, is a clue.
Does anybody happen to know how they did in 1909?
Looking back at the front of the postcard, I like Dog the Mascot. And I hope nobody needs me to tell them it’s not THAT Cy Young.
