Default I way overpaid for this postally used PC.................

but it is so way cool!

Usually a postal mark reduces the value of a card - but this enhances it. A verified 1907 Cobb! Love it!! Anyone else have cool postal marks?

Great thread. Even though a postmark may lower the technical grade of a postcard, I think that they can really add to its over desirability. I certainly would pay a premium for a postcard with a signifcant postmark that helps tell its story.

This one has a Boston postmark from October 11, 1915, the third game of the World Series, which was the first game that was played in Boston. Dutch Leonard out-pitched Grover Alexander 2-1 and the Red Sox took the Series lead two games to one.

I wonder if this postcard was purchased at the game?

The World Series connection to the above cards is amazing! Were these sold at the stadiums? That makes sense. I checked the Tigers schedule for 1907 and they beat the Highlander's in New York 1-0 that day, so my card was not bought that day.

Such GREAT cards. I love postcards with postal use. Way more than without, actually.

Thanks for sharing!

So true. I love how it pins down the date and provenance of the card. Even better when they are signed. I have a 1953 Satchel Paige team issue from St. Louis, a 1957 Don Drysdale with a Brooklyn postmark and a Koufax postmarked from Los Angeles in 1966.

Good thread. Here is one of my favorite postcard series (Grignon), and postal dated cards--October 12, 1907, the day the Cubs beat Detroit and Cobb to win the 1907 World Series in game five before 7,370 fans at Bennett Park in Detroit. Cobb had a single and was caught stealing. Mordecai Brown won the game defeating George Mullin for Mullin's second loss of the series. Interestingly, Mullin won 20 games and lost 20 that season with a 2.59 ERA.

The comment on the front of the card is wonderful, and at one point a previous owner attributed the note to the Cubs' Frank Schulte. I don't think it's his hand-writing, though.

It is a cool period piece from the final day of the 1907 season.

Cheers,
Mike

Love used postcards with baseball content, fountain pen writing and old-fashioned penmanship, postmarks a bonus. Here's a random assortment of scans hiding at the bottom of my computer, some of which meet the criteria.











This Ullman was mailed to the sister of Christy Mathewson. I believe it might have been sent by brother Henry but haven't sleuthed it out enough to be sure.
