  • Photo is colorized by ManCave Pictures
  • Restoration & Coloring process for each photo can take anywhere from 8 to 150+ hours to complete

"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
Connie Mack won five World Series titles, a record nine American League pennants and 3,776 games, nearly 1,000 more than any other manager in history. Still, “The Tall Tactician” is best remembered as a dignified leader who donned a business suit to dispense wisdom to a generation of players. “You’re born with two strikes against you, so don’t take a third one on your own,” Mack was fond of stating to his clubs. Though his entrance to baseball came by playing catcher for 11 seasons, in 1901 Mack assumed control of the Philadelphia Athletics, the team he would lead for the next 50 years.
