Blanked back. What does this mean, or do I need to wait for the book to come out?

Default 1910 Portland Beavers

The 1910 Portland Beavers individual player postcards series are right up there for me. Here are a few, including one of my all-time favorite RPPCs and favorite players, Sylveanus Augustus Gregg.

Gregg had an incredible year as the ace of the 1910 PCL champion Beavers, en route to three 20 win seasons in his first three years with the Cleveland Naps.

If anyone has any from this series available for sale or trade, I'm all ears!

Default Bloomer Girls

Leon's Rapid City Collegiate RPPC inspired me to pull out a handful of Bloomer Girls cards to post.

I'd guess that there are no surviving examples of the "College Bloomer Girls" posters pictured in the bar , but man, I'd love to see that thing in its full color-litho glory. Same for the Western Bloomer Girls truck.

I know from an order form that Guy Green mailed out to team managers that the Nebraska Indians had large posters that they would mail out ahead of time to teams on their schedule. I would dearly love to even find a photo of one. Nice postcards, Dave.

Yes, the book will be awesome but my question about the Ruth was strictly about the card--I thought I'd seen that exact card before and wanted to be sure it was the same one, which wasn't a PC.

I got one PC recently:



This kind of single event PC is like pizza to me: can't resist it. Checks all the boxes:

--Vintage
--Rare
--HOFer depicted

Postcard sent by Red Sox owner Joe Lannin to Nuf Ced McGreevey during 1914 Spring Training. Interesting baseball content... “we are going for the pennant from the start.”

Thanks, Dan and Jeff. Amazingly, found the postcard on Ebay (along with a second postcard sent to Nuf Ced - both auctioned together in a lot). The second postcard was sent to McGreevey from an individual named Joe Burns, a known/documented member of the Royal Rooters. That postcard, sent from Hot Springs in March, 1917, also contains some baseball content. Burns writes that "the Sox are looking fine".

Default LA Angels, 1910

Postcard thread on the 3rd page? Unacceptable.

Here's an RPPC of LA Angels catcher Harry Waring, accompanied by a 1910 LA program interior page which uses the same image. Program cover too.

Default 1912 Portsmouth Cobblers Team PC with Billy Southworth

Very cool PC, David. Here's my latest and greatest pick-up, which I shared in the March pick-ups thread:




The image is the same as a Cabinet I once owned. The clarity on this one is out of this world, IMO.

Jeff Dickson was an American boxing promoter in Europe in the interwar period, elected to the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 2000. This British 1930s RPPC shows him with fellow HOFers Thil and Brown.

In 1943, Capt. Jeff Dickson was killed in action over Germany while serving in the U.S. Air Force during World War II.



This 1940s PC shows HOF trainer Chris Dundee and his stable of fighters, including HOFer Ken Overlin and Georgie Abrams, who Sugar Ray Robinson said had given him his toughest fight.

Thanks Raymond.

He is identified as Dick Mayes. Says he played with Pirates in 1880's. Also on back of mine it says he was still playing on 3/4 century team at the time of this photo!

Here is a link to one of the only other copies of seen, from REA Fall 2017

The only other copy I've seen is this one from a 10 year old H&S auction

I love this thread...

This made it today and I have been dreading finding this card for 6 years, before I started the set. This is clearly the toughest card in the set, one hasn't sold at pubic auction since 2009 and I had a member take pity on me and sell it to me.

I also locked up a deal for the Johnson and wont have to chase the one on HA and will be down to one card left for the 796 set.

Congrats Steven. Plank is a tough one. I think that he was the last HOFer that I needed when I put together the set (now dispersed). FWIW, there were a couple Planks offered in auctions back in 2012.

Thanks, super happy to have it.

I bought the Cobb/Wagner at the National in 2012 and started paying attention, I guess my search missed those.

Seems to me like the rare and important postcards featuring HOF players are becoming a real niche in the hobby. Is it me, or do others see the postcard side of the hobby becoming more appealing to mainstream collectors.

Some big time collectors have been in on this little secret for a long time. When you look at guys like Kevin Struss, JC, Jeff P, and Jeff Lichtmann, these are very sharp and shrewd collectors who found these treasures years ago. They zigged when others zagged.
If you had told me 3 years ago that I would collect postcards, i would tell you that you are crazy. I almost returned my first PC before it even got delivered! I didn't think my OCD could handle an oversized card. I was wrong.
When I was a 10 year old reading my Beckett Magazine, it certainly wasnt postcards that I drooled over. But we as collectors change and Mature. We try new things. We begin to value rarity over grades. We find beauty in a big sepia or black and white photo-image that you don't find in colored artist's rendering (not a shot at standard cards. I love those too). I think most guys who won't buy a postcard have never actually held a Rose Co or a Novelty Company in their hands (there aren't that many out there). But yes, I agree with you that more folks are opening up to pcs.

Seems to me like the rare and important postcards featuring HOF players are becoming a real niche in the hobby. Is it me, or do others see the postcard side of the hobby becoming more appealing to mainstream collectors.
Nah, PCs suck...they aren't even real cards. Oversized, random things using images that you rarely see elsewhere really have no place in he hobby. And the fact that the images used often predate other "cards" just makes things weird. There are also so many team pcs and we all know those do not really count either as they are teams and not the player. So maybe some day way down the line if something happened to the real cards, but for now theyre not really worth the stock they were printed on.

I've only got one PC, but having one has broadened my interest in owning others. I agree that actually holding a stabbed postcard in your hand can make all of the difference. My fear is that the 2 other postcards that I want are already out of financial reach.

Orly, you now can read Beckett articles showing and discussing cards you own! Hope everyone is mentoring or educating a youngster on anything prewar related to baseball. Congrats to Steven on the Plank and near completion to the PC796 set. What most new postcard colllectors do not realize, is you can't base a price off a prior sale! RPPCs are one of a kind and rare series hardy come up in auction. Plus, many private sales which the sale price goes un reported, and you only hear about it, through rumorville.

Look at these public realized prices from sales

Ty Cobb E&S postcard 2018 Memory Lane 29,335.20

Ty Cobb Topping postcard 2018 Memory Lane 37,735.20
(Previous sale 2007 Goodwin 3470.95 and REA 1,100.00)

Ty Cobb Morton Buster Brown Pin 2018 Memory Lane 8,070.00

Ty Cobb Schapira Bros 2015 Heritage 11,950.00
(Previous sale 2007 Goodwin 3470.95)

Hal Chase St Marys Pre Rookie RPPC 2018 LOTG 9,840.00.

Showing different examples of items that run up higher than expitations for the auction. Surprising no way! Collectors are realizing how rare this stuff is and are starting to go for it without using a guide or a website saying what the "market price" is.

Ethan, Im confused. You PMd me saying you had a 15 Red Sox team PC with Ruth you were interested in potentially trading. And now youre saying you dont own one as its out of your reach? What am I missing here? Or are these two different cards? Admittedly, Im not a PC guy, so just trying to understand.

The price on the Topping PC is crazy. I have a Cobb Brush postcard, wonder what that would go for now?

The Brush is a nice one. There are actually less known Brush Cobbs than Topping. There are 7 Topping Cobbs graded (3 psa 4 sgc), and there are only 5 Brush (2 psa and 3 sgc). The Brush is not a catalogued set, while the Topping is (pc 773-1). Makes no difference to me. The Brush set is extremely cool and unique. Here are mine:

I know this is not pre war but how about seeing some postcards from recently like the Bill and Bob's, Ford Motor Tigers, Dormand's and some of the other beautiful work done by the likes of Doug McWilliams, Barry Colla and maybe others? Move me Leon if this does not fit here.
