Real-photo postcard capturing 20 members of the 1907 American League Champion Detroit Tigers in a classic team pose, including Ty Cobb, manager Hughie Jennings, Sam Crawford, George Mullin, and Germany Schaefer. Graded VG-EX+ 4.5 by SGC. The white-letter caption along the base reads “Detroit’s 1907.” An overprint, reading “Pennant Winners American League” appears on the white border to the right of the photo. 1907 marked the first of Detroit’s three consecutive American League Championship seasons, all of which ultimately ended with a World Series loss. The postcard (5.5 x 3.5 inches) has not been addressed or mailed and remains an outstanding example of this classic Detroit team card.

Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
