I spent two full days with microfilm this week in the NY public library reviewing the New York Daily News and The New York Herald from 1900 and 1902.
There were large clear pictures of the Giants in dark hats and dark socks in 1902. The NY public library did not have The News for 1900 and 1901 if you can believe it, so I was left with the small images of The Herald for 1900, but the dark hats were observable in 1900 as well. I did not review 1901. It appears a dark hat and socks was a road outfit or an alternate outfit uniform.
We need further research on uniform for the Giants 1900-1902, and to adjust our popular online references.

Wow. Now that is a labor of love. Thanks for taking the time. Is there a way for you to (legally) share any of the images you saw?

Did not have the Daily News for 1900 or 1901 in the NY public library if you can believe it, the News has the larger photos. only The New York Herald for 1900 and 1901 which had too small pictures to replicate clearly. For 1902 there were a number. Here is a picture in such uniform in Baseball Memories: 1900-1909, Marc Okkonen, Sterling Publishing Co., New York, page 214, dark hat and socks, Polo Grounds, April 1901
