Default Help with ID on Real Photo Postcard

I strongly believe this real photo postcard shows avid fisherman, and pretty good ballplayer, Honus Wagner in action. Hard to mistake his distinctive features. Agree or disagree? Thanks!

That really looks like Wagner. But why make a postcard of Honus Wagner fishing and why not identify him anywhere on the postcard?

Many real photo postcards were printed individually or in very small quantities to be sent to only friends and family, not for mass distribution or part of any kind of series. This is likely a unique postcard.

Looks like Wags to me! What's really funny is that the seller described it as Ty Cobb!

I always look at the object in question before I read what the conjecture is and I instantly thought Wagner.

I never realized he was a one legged ball player! Makes his accomplishments even more amazing!

Thank Kris. I have a lot to learn still about PCs. I think of a PC as what you get at the IheartNY stores in the city.

Likely unique but wouldn't surprise me to see another either. Looks like Honus to me too.

What in the heck is he sitting on and how on earth would someone stand up and get off of it once done fishing?

Oh, I think it looks like Wags as well..........
