New Tintype Heroes

July 05, 1970

In the old days of baseball, Ossee Schreckengost stuffed his catcher's mitt with feathers to muffle the legendary fast ball of Rube Waddell, and that great ballhawk of more than a century ago, John Chapman, won the sobriquet, 'Death to Flying Things.' But it remained for Photographer Mark Kauffman to introduce a stuffed pheasant into the game. Recently he stood one up next to Baltimore's Robinsons, Frank and Brooks, and snapped the kind of picture that has not been seen since players wore turtlenecks and rode to the park in trolley cars. Delighted with the effect, Kauffman surrounded some other of today's heroes with rich and assorted relics of our mauve past. The players responded with enough ham to produce on the following pages the handsome album of new tintypes.
