A postcard of the 1911 New York Highlanders (Vintage Ball)

A postcard of the 1911 New York Highlanders (Vintage Ball)

The 1911 New York Highlanders were 76-76 and finished 6th in the American League, just 3 games out of 3rd place, which isn’t bad considering they had a run differential of -39.  Of all the heads on this postcard, Hippo Vaughn has the most unfortunate placement, residing in the netherlands of the high-stepping scotsman with the head of Hal Chase.  But when you bat .143 with 1 extra base hit and 3 RBIs in 1911 there is not a more deserving spot.
