Default Question on George Brett Postcards

Hoping someone here can help me out with these two postcards.

Any info on the one on the left? It kind of has the look of a JD McCarthy postcard but no mark and the back is completely blank. I donít have it on my checklist anywhere and no clue what it is or the year.

The second one is the team issue from (I believe) 1984, 1985, and 1986. Most of these team issues had the same image for multiple years. Anyone know a way to tell the years apart? Or is there legitimately no difference in those years and I should stop trying to collect individual years for those?

Any ideas are appreciated.

Default george brett postcards

The second card is a 1984 team issued postcard
the first one I have, but don't think its a McCarthy and
I am not sure its that old either. Might be a "made for ebay"
card. I know its a smaller version of a photo. Just don't know

Default Thanks

Thanks for the follow up. I have the same sense as you on the first one being a more modern production. Canít remember if I got it from eBay or not but didnít pay much. It definitely is not a JDM but I think made to look like it.

Do you know on the Ď84 team issue if thereís a way to tell the years apart? I believe the Ď85 and Ď86 are the exact same image and all blank backed. Not sure if I should be trying to find three cards there or just one to represent the three years. Same problem with other years in the team issues.

Default George brett postcards

This is just my opinion. For the purpose of collecting I would use
the one year. You might go to PSA registry master set and see what
they use for the years of the different postcards.
I have done some study on this and here is what I know.
Most "postcards" were used by teams for various purposes. Many
were provided to newspapers or giveaway at the park and were
probably used over a period of time. For the purpose of collecting
they are called postcards. With the Brett's there is one year (don't recall
which right now) where his auto is stamped on some. I think those
were given to members of the Brett fan club but don't really have
any varification. The royals didn't really keep track of any of that at
that time. Hope this helps

Default Another One?

This one has sold on eBay a couple of times now. Looks exactly like a team issue. But not on any checklist I can find. Wondering if itís a more recent creation. I have this one in hand. It seems to be on similar stock and the same size as other team issues.

I try to build the sets for the Photocards of the Royals, and I canít make heads or Tails on years.
So confusing.

Default Can you post a pic of the PC back?

Are there any markings on the back, handwritten? That can give a clue to the source of your George Brett PC.

Iíve seen so many different labels on the years. I find it particularly frustrating because some master checklists have the same card listed in multiple years and there is clearly no way to discern the actual year even if it was issued in different years, which itís very likely some of the images were. Iíve given up trying to identify an actual year for all the George Brettís and just keep a list of the images I know exist. This last one was interesting because in 20+ years of collecting these I had never seen it. Then in the past month Iíve seen two for sale. Could be coincidence but thatís why I was wondering if it was a more recent creation.

Unfortunately, no. Blank back with no writing. Just like the other team issues. Same size as well.

Good evening:

The photo you have posted is obviously a Royals postcard. Unfortunately
right this minute I can't recall the year, but will look around. I do think this
is one you don't see alot of. I can tell you the image was in a yearly program so it was pretty easy to pin down the year. But again, photos could be taken
on year and posted in another year or years.
