By the end of the Nineteenth Century, surfing was but a relic of the once proud sport it had once been; practiced by only a small number of cadre scattered about the Hawaiian Islands.
Duke's role as, first, one of the revivalist surfers and then, later, as surfing's ambassador to the world was key to surfing's coming back from the near death state that had befallen it by the end of the 1800s.
This second water sports club to be formed in Waikiki's revival period is still very much in existence, today.

 The New York Times: This Day In Sports   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
NEW YORK-A new mark in modern American tennis was set today when William T. Tilden 2d won the national championship for the sixth successive year and captured his second challenge trophy outright.
Volleying flawlessly with punching strokes and whipping his mighty forehand across the net at a low altitude, the Californian carried the attack to his opponent with such impetuousness that for the first and second sets Tilden had to call upon all his brilliancy as a shotmaker to stay on even terms with him.
Part of sport's golden age with Babe Ruth, Jack Dempsey and Red Grange, Tilden not only was invincible in the United States nationals but also won Wimbledon both times he played there and led the United States to seven straight Davis Cup victories.

I love this gem, and I was just looking at a site that showed some auctions of 1915 Cracker Jacks and the prices were higher than I would have guessed.
(keep in mind that in 1915 the printing process put into cards was not as precise as it is today, so there were probably a few error cards in that set) But thats a pretty cool card you have there, mysterious player as well...
I am by no means an expert on Cracker Jack but I have heard the 1915 issue is more scarce than the 1914 thus leading to higher prices.
