Looks like I have an unidentified Throwback Game between the Tigers and Royals, playing as the Stars and Monarchs. This 1997 Pinnacle Alan Trammell I thought went with the 1996 Throwback game the Tigers would have put on. As I've been updating my pages and Blowout forums pages I've come to 1996. So I lined this up. It was then I noticed there is no Tigers and Royals throwback game in 1996. I thought, maybe it is a photo from the 1995 game. The Royals wore red-sleeved 1925 K.C. Monarchs jerseys with the black heart patch on the side.
One problem with the 1995 theory is Alan Trammel didn't play in the July 8, 1995 game. He played on the 6th, 7th, and 9th, but not the 8th. Now it is possible that these uniforms were worn on multiple games that weekend, but I cannot confirm that.
So we can rule out 1995, if it was a single game, and the 1996 game was against the Yankees.
Todd Peterson in The Negro Leagues were Major Leagues, has listed an August 24th, 1996 game with Detroit as the Stars playing the Royals at the Monarchs, but at K.C. Trammel again was not in that ballgame according to Baseball-reference.com.
Royal Heritage has listed a game on July 30, 1995 with the Tigers on the road against the Royals. He has the Royals playing in White Pinstripe 1924 Monarchs jerseys. These jerseys lack the red sleeves as seen on the Trammel card.
Trammel also retired at end of 1996, so this isn't the 1997 game represented on the 1997 Pinnacle card. I think for sure there is a game missing between these two teams in Negro League Throwbacks in either 1995 or 1996.
