Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC (submitted by REA). Striking real-photo team composite postcard of the Cleveland Naps from the 1908 American League Publishing Team Postcard series. This is one of the most desirable team postcards of the era. The postcard features composite portrait images of twenty team members, including Hall of Famers Nap Lajoie, Addie Joss, and Elmer Flick, with Lajoie in the center. Players are identified along the base of the postcard. The card (3.5 x 5.5 inches), which is not addressed or mailed, displays a crease in the lower right corner, and light wear on the corners. This is an exceptional postcard worthy of any Cleveland Naps, postcard, or prewar-card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
