Which Team Are These Giants On, Anyway?


I wanted to share this great photo of five great New York Giants. From left to right we have Fred Merkle, Laughing Larry Doyle, Christy Mathewson, J.J. McGraw and Fred Snodgrass. The most interesting aspect to me, however, is that it perfectly illustrates the challenges that we sometimes have in determining the correct details of team uniforms for a certain year. If you look closely you’ll see that not one of the five men are wearing the same uniform; each has a unique combination of New York apparel. Even McGraw and Snodgrass seem to be wearing different, though similar, uniforms. Anyway, it is a great photo!
