1889 The Carlton team was photographed prior to the game against Richmond at EMCG on July 20. Mears did play in that match.
However the same line up except for Mears, who was replaced by Eddie Brooks, played St.Kida on August 31.

Mears possibly appears in a 1894 team photo. This photo, possibly, is incorrectly dated and should be 1889.
