Need help with ID: Jack Lapp, Phila A's 1908-15...

I was wondering if anyone on this board might help identifying this Jack Lapp card. The size of it is 2.5625 by 4.5 inches. The picture is backed on thick cardboard stock, like many cabinet style pics of the time.

I have had this for many years, and still can't figure it out.

Thanks and Happy Holidays!

Could the picture have been cut out of a newspaper or magazine and then glued on a larger piece of cardboard?

I was wondering if it may have been a re-applied cut out of some sort. The paper quality of the front is might be slightly lesser than your regular cabinet photo of that time period. That could mean that it is a magazine cut or something; however the application of it to the backing seems flawless, so I thought, maybe something massed produced. In looking at the damage around the front edges it seems as if someone at some point had it matted inside (or behind) at mat board; which could mean that a former owner spent at least some amount of time doing something with it. Just makes my head spin.

the reference material on uniforms would appear to date the photo to either 1913 or 1914. Also note that the same photo was used for Lapp in the m101-4&5 sets from his last season in 1916:
