1906-1907 Sporting Life team postcard of the St. Louis Browns. The composite photo features individual portrait images of 19 team members, including future Hall of Famer Bobby Wallace and manager James McAleer. This is a smaller, postcard version of the Sporting Life team composites (13 x 14 inches) issued by the Sporting Life newspaper, which were available to fans either by individual purchase (for ten cents) or as a complete set in a bound volume. The postcard (5.5 x 3.5 inches) includes a vintage, handwritten note on the front and has been addressed and mailed. The postmark is dated "Sep 30 1907." In Good condition overall, with a small edge tear along the top border, light corner creases, and uneven toning on the reverse from its once having been mounted in an album with photo corners.

Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
