Yes. The Cincinnati Red Stockings changed their team name to the Cincinnati Reds in 1882. They will remain the Reds until the present day with the exception of a six year period starting in 1953.

In fear that the teams name, the Reds, might be associated with communism the name was changed to the Redlegs. People were very paranoid about communism in the 1950s during the McCarthy era.

What is the value of a baseball autographed by Lou Piniella Paul O'Neill Randy Myers and other teammates?

The baseball you have could be a Cincinnati Reds baseball from 1990 or 1991 the only two years the three players mentioned appear on the same team. A 1990 Cincinnati Reds Team Signed Baseball with the key signatures: Davis, Larkin, and Piniella is worth about $250.-$350. A 1991 baseball with the same key signatures is worth about $75.-$100. Value is based on average prices of recently closed auctions. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the baseball. Prices may also vary based on the amount of signatures, and key signatures acquired. The more complete the baseball with key signatures the more valuable. I will leave a link for Cincinnati Reds team signed baseballs complete with lists of key signatures, and links to full team rosters. If you can't narrow it down to one particular year, and it is signed by various players from different years the baseball would be a Cincinnati Reds Multi signed baseball and could be worth less. Keep in mind that a signed baseball without a creditable letter of authenticity could sell for half the market value or less.

Is Philadelphia Phily the oldest major league baseball team?

There are 3 teams claiming to be the oldest: 1. The Chicago Cubs began as the Chicago White Stockings in 1870. They are therefore the oldest team in the same city continuously. 2. The Cincinnati Reds claim to be the oldest since they began in 1869, but unlike Chicago, they have played in several cities over their lifespan. 3. The Philadelphia Phillies claim to be the oldest "same name, same city" team, beginning in 1883. You pick your favorite. Ignoring name changes and relocations, the Reds have the best claim.
