Baseball Postcard from Gresham, Oregon

Gresham, Oregon Baseball Postcard of Catcher Jack Hamlin

Meet young Jack Hamlin, whose picture was taken c. 1915. He wears a catcher’s mitt and has what appears to be a hard ball in hand in this scarce unused Azo Tri 1 real-photo postcard (otherwise known as an RPPC). Hamlin played for a Gresham, Oregon baseball team. This vintage postcard is nicely detailed and sharply focused, with great clarity. We were never able to ascertain the full name of the S & L team whose name is on the front of Hamlin’s baseball shirt. If you know, let us know, and we’ll publish the answer to this Multnomah County history question.
