Item Description
c. 1920s. 8x10” showing 3 players in full uniform on field holding bats. Photo by Mosley Philadelphia. Jerseys read “Phila. Daisies” and hats have “PD” logo. In 1923 the Hilldale Daisies became a charter member of the Eastern Colored League and won the first of 3 pennants with records of 32-17 and 47-13. The latter 2 years they played in the first two Negro World Series between their league and a more established Negro National League. After losing the first series to the Kansas City Monarchs in 1924, they defeated the Monarchs in a re-match between the same 2 teams in 1925 to claim the first and only World Series victory by an Eastern Colored League team. The franchise was sold to John Drew, who owned a bus line from Darby to Philadelphia in 1929. He named the team the “Darby Daisies.” The team dissolved in the early 1930s. Photo has lt. handling creases, mostly just visible in reflected light. VG. Nice image. From the Richard Merkin Collection and comes with Hake’s COA.
