Real-photo postcard capturing twenty-two members of the 1907 Cleveland Naps in a classic team pose, including player/manager Nap Lajoie (for whom the team was named) and Addie Joss. The photographer’s copyright appears along the base in white lettering: “Copyright 1907 Raymond Kahn Co.” The printing on the reverse reads “Issued by the Cleveland Base Ball Team.” The postcard (5.5 x 3.5 inches) has not been addressed or mailed. Graded GOOD+ 35 by SGC. It must be noted that the grade is based mainly on a small area of discoloration and paper loss in the center of the card (to the right of Lajoie’s image) and it is otherwise in Excellent condition overall. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
