c. 1906 Rare and early photograph of members of the Detroit Tigers in uniform and mingling with black street venders in Shreveport, Louisiana. From the scrapbook of Matty McIntyre, the handwriting on the back is his (which is very rare). We are not 100% sure of the date and can only find record of the Tigers playing in Shreveport in 1903, but McIntyre did not start with the Tigers until 1904 and the player at right looks a lot like Ty Cobb and his name has been added to the back later (not by McIntyre) so more research is needed. A great piece of early Detroit Tigers history and offered here individually for the first time ever!
