Photos are probably my favorite items to collect.  They capture a moment in time, and can provide a sense for how things looked and even how the game was played in the past.  While action shots and individual player photos are great, team photos provide an added benefit for the researcher - not only can they provide info about uniform numbers, but they also sometimes provide the only photo of a fringe player in the teams uniform.  For example, Norm Lenardon was a late-season call-up by the Seattle Americans in 1957, appearing in the last three regular season games plus six playoff contests.  He didn’t appear on an individual promotional photo - but he is on the team photo.


Below is a selection of team photos for teams ranging from the Metropolitans to the Breakers (I simply have too many TBirds team photos and posters to include them here as well, and they are more readily available).
