Team Issued Photos

The Cardinals, like most other Major League teams, gave away and sold black and white photos to their fans from 1957 until 1971. They could be purchased at the stadium and ordered by mail from either the team or the manufacturer. Like the team issued postcards these photos were often issued more than one year with numerous cropping differences. There are seven major types:

Type 1
Type 2
Type 3
Type 4
Type 5
Type 6
Type 7
Type 8
Type 9

 

Type 1 (1957)


These 5x7 photos were manufactured by Jay Publusning in 1957. They are printed on glossy paper with thick block lettering. The team name is "Cardinals".
