Sweet! Where did you get the images for that team set? It looks like a variation of the pdf listing I have from Dan Even. I'll keep my eye out to see if I have a Pappas squatting JDMc PC somewhere in my collection.

I know there are a few blank back postcards that were actually issued before Red Wimmer bought the rights/collection (due to postage stamps on the back). Are most blank backed ones, though, reprints made by Wimmer?

His are easy to tell from the real ones as the paper stock is very thin.

good to know. Thanks for sharing. I think I have noticed a few paper thin ones in my collection, so perhaps I've been duped in a few instances. Do any of the Wimmer reprints have a postcard back or the post 1963 JD McCarthy one line address on the back? Or are they all blank backed?

Some have the postcard back and also the one line. The first Red Wings McCarthy put out were on thin stock in the 40's but were oversized. It seems if you have collected these for many years you just know the feel of a authentic one.

Picked this up earlier this year. Was listed as the 1914 York Prohibitionists, though I’m not sure about the year. Guy on the bottom right looks like Dutch Wetzel to me. Anyone recognize any of the other players?

1909 RPPC of Connie Mack and Philadelphia Inquirer World Series Tourists (ticket winners in a contest sponsored by the newspaper) at Shibe Park.

Arrived postage due, but the address is pretty funky. Looks like it says something like:

Base Ball Mt.
Letter Carrier (?)
City

One of the fun things about many mailed PCs is that I have no idea how they ever got to their intended recipients.

Default James Elder Postcard Question

I know this postcard is newer than most on this thread, but hoping someone can give me more information.

I always believed this Ken Hubbs postcard was issued by James Elder based upon the #365 on the back. However, the front doesn't seem to match any photos I've found on the internet. The Elder Ken Hubbs postcards I've found show him in a batting pose. The postcard has the look and feel of an James Elder issue.

Can anyone verify if this is a James Elder postcard and is it Ken Hubbs? I'm not aware of any Elder variations. I assume the autograph on the back isn't Hubbs, but thoughts/opinions on the autograph are appreciated.

Yes it is Ken Hubbs without a doubt. Probably an Elder card, the number matches up with his "set" number for Hubbs, but it is a different photo. On the signature I would post this in the autograph section and ask for the expert opinion over there. Elder's "set" is attributed to 1966 which would make it impossible for Hubbs to have signed it, but I don't know how they came to the conclusion the set is from that year...I suspect he put those cards out over a number of years.

I picked up this PC of the 1927? Portsmouth Truckers team from the Richard Merkin collection in the very recent Hake's Auction. If this is the 1927 team, its player-manager at age 41 was Zinn Beck (who sold his Zinn Beck Bat Co. in 1927). Beck, in his only year with Portsmouth, led the team to the Virginia League championship in 1927. If this is the 1927 team and if Beck is in this pic, I would guess he's the only one in uniform that is not wearing a baseball cap. I'n not much of a researcher, and my Google search didn't turn up any pics that I was able to match to the PC. Can anyone identify Zinn Beck as being in this PC?

@ValKehl: Judging from this photo I would say Zinn Beck is the man in the suit.

Richard, I think you may have nailed it - thanks. I do see a resemblance. Until now, I hadn't even considered the man in the suit. Because Zinn Beck played in 97 games as the player-manager, I assumed he'd be one of the guys in uniform and the guy in the suit to be the team owner or GM.

Just catching up on this thread. When something was mailed within the limits of a town or city you could address it to city and it woud get to where it was intended. I have a number of Christmas cards from about 1948-51 mailed to an Olympic gold medalist. He lived in Cleveland and many of them have the street address and also say 'city'. If the town was small enough as I suspect Bridgeton, NJ was back then it would probably be very easy for the letter carrier to know where the baseball meeting was.

The card looks like it says the game is in Davenport, IA not Rock Island, IL.

Here is the only postcard I have ever owned. I love that it looks like Hollywood central casting was called in to assemble this rag tag (but tidy and uniformly uniformed) crew, with the kindly Father Finnegan leading them down the straight and narrow both on field and off. Of course, the player at the upper left may have to ask for forgiveness in confession based upon his suggestive batting stance.
