Spanswick three-step

Might as well add another.

The first step is just using color balance on the entire image and that only gets you so far.

The second part was using color balance and saturation on individual pieces. Purpose being, as much as anything, not to keep messing with the flesh tones as you try to get the rest in order. You pretty much want to drain all the color out of the uniform (other than your powder blues, where applicable).

The third one reflects selective colorization of a few pieces (notably the stands). The cap and sleeve were colorized in step 2 cuz it just worked out that way.

I could see the second one being preferable to the third, where I tried to get some yellow on the face and likely oversaturated (as I tend to do). But I highly recommend to others that you endeavor to lighten the whites of the eyes on these things. Regardless of your technique, there's no reason the player has to look like he just polished off a tray of pot brownies.

Bill Spanswick

If you download the free program GIMP you will only have to go to the auto button and click white balance and it will do the trick. Free and easy although fatjack's looks much better the former will get all that redness out without much fuss

You gentlemen have absolutely brought this pic back to life. We've been stuck with basically one crappy photo of Spanswick since 1965, and this is the THE SHOT

Luis Olmo's All-Star-Worthy Year of 1945

I'm very sorry to hear the news of Luis Olmo's death. He would have turned 98 this coming August.
He had the misfortune of having his best MLB season in 1945 when no all-star game was played (That's the only year in the game's 85 year history when the game was cancelled.)
He definitely had all-star game selection worthy batting statistics. His final statistics for that season for the Brooklyn Dodgers included 174 hits in 556 at-bats for a .313 batting average and he drove in 110 runs with only 10 home runs. He led the National League that year with 13 triples and had a career-high 15 stolen bases. He had some of the best hitting stats that year for any National League outfielder.
R.I.P, Luis.

Spanswick TV again.

I took another stab at this Spanswick TV after noticing that some of the earlier touchups (including mine) were giving the Yankee Stadium frieze a toothpasty mint-green glow.

The first image is the original TV image.

Unidentified Milwaukee Brave

I looked at images for all the career minor leaguers who were on Braves rosters or were Braves NRI's from 1953 through 1963 that I could. Yes, I think the Braves were still wearing their 1962 uniforms during spring training of 1963. I was unable to come up with a match with the unidentified Milwaukee Brave. There was one player out of these two groups whose photo I lack. He was pitcher Lou Slattery, a non-roster invitee with the 1956 Braves. He can't be ruled out, because no photo comparison has been made, but he was a mighty obscure guy. As best I can tell, he had no minor league career. He is not listed in baseball-reference.com. There seems to be no record of his birth date, or from whence he came. I've seen his surname also spelled as Slatery in newspaper articles.

Speaking for myself, I colorized the stands in a minty green because that's the color they actually were at the time.

Former player and Manager Sam Mele passed away

Born Sabath Anthony Mele, he signed as an amateur free agent with the Red Sox prior to the 1946 season. He went on to play 1,046 games over 10 seasons, including parts of five with the Sox (1947-49, 1954-55). He hit .278 for Boston over that span, including .302 as a rookie in 1947.

Mele went into coaching after his playing career and managed the Minnesota Twins for parts of seven seasons (1961-67). He was named the Sporting News' Manager of the Year in 1965 after leading Minnesota to an AL pennant-winning record of 102-60. RIP

Sam Mele was held in high regard and affection in the twin cities and the Upper Midwest. he took that team from cellar-dwellars to a strong perennial contender that came so close to being the 1965 World's Champions, but Sandy Koufax outpitched Jim Kaat in the decisive Game 7. Mele was 88 games above .500 with a .546 winning percentage in his seven years at the helm of the Twins (his only MLB managing job).

Walt Streuli (Colorized & Custom)

If you know my stuff from Baseball-Birthdays, you know I have this aversion to colorizing something that someone else has already colorized. Not saying I never do it, but I prefer not to. Seems kinda disrespectful, in a weird way.

So there's a gorgeous, crisp, clean B&W of Streuli that was posted at Baseball-Birthdays eons ago--exactly the kind of image you'd want for a colorization. So, naturally, it's been colorized by many.

The Elder postcard doesn't do anything for me. So I grabbed this one off of eBay. You can see right away that it's a poor source image. But at least I haven't seen it colorized before (and, if it has been, I don't want to see it, thank you).

Had to reconstruct the stands, sorta; didn't really put too much effort into that. And, it didn't end up looking like it, but that is navy, not black, for the cap, etc. An obligatory "not my best work, but consider the source" and here it is.
