Graded EX 60 by SGC. Rare Hall of Famer example of St. Louis Cardinals catcher/manager (as indicated on this card) Roger Bresnahan from the PC743 H. H. Bregstone Postcards series. Noted as "among the rarest of early 20th century baseball player postcards" in the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards, this is only the third Bregstone Postcard example that we have offered during the past fifteen years! This series features exclusively members of the St. Louis Browns and Cardinals with each player depicted in a sepia photo posed on a ball field. The offered Bregstone postcard is bright and crisp with tremendous photo clarity and light, even wear to the corners. The postcard reverse is free of any writing or postmarking and is entirely clean. This is an exceptional high-grade Hall of Famer example from this rare series, which would make a superb addition to any advanced postcard or prewar Hall of Famer card collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
