"Many attempts are made at colorization but none are of higher quality than these images available here by ManCave Pictures. The hours required and skill involved to achieve this level of quality and detail are very high. They take these faded, scratched, dusty pieces of history and breathe life into them, rescuing lost images for all to experience in a new, re-imagined way.  Their ability to extract photographic information out of seemingly hopeless areas of the images, is really quite astonishing. Though computer based processes and many self-developed techniques are used, don’t be fooled into thinking it is easy. There are no tricky short-cuts, simple filters, or single clicks of the mouse used here. The process all begins with days of obsessive research for accuracy in color from historical source references, followed by intensively detailed, archival art restoration & repair of the original black & white image, and then they meticulously apply layer upon layer of digital color to bring them to life. They can complete an undamaged, basic portrait with minimal restoration required, in 8-10 hours. However, large, complex, team or stadium photos that are in bad shape, can take upwards of 150+ hours of intensive work to restore and create these truly special images. Skill, determination, patience, and extreme attention to detail is what it takes to bring these vintage sports treasures such as these to life."

Player Biography
“(Christy) Mathewson was the greatest pitcher who ever lived. He had knowledge, judgment, perfect control and form,” raved Hall of Fame manager Connie Mack. “Big Six” won 373 games in 17 seasons, almost entirely for the New York Giants. Using his famous fade-away pitch, Mathewson won at least 22 games for 12 straight years, winning at least 30 games four times. His lone championship in four World Series appearances came in 1905, when he tossed three shutouts in six days against the Philadelphia Athletics. Mathewson set the modern National League mark with 37 wins in 1908.
