Graded GOOD 30 by SGC (submitted by REA). Rare Hall of Famer example of St. Louis Browns pitcher Rube Waddell from the PC743 H. H. Bregstone Postcards series. This card originates from the finest collection of Bregstones to have ever been assembled! (The collection is being offered as several lots in this current auction.) Noted as "among the rarest of early 20th century baseball player postcards" in the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards, this is only the fifth 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 even wear to the corners. The postcard reverse is free of any writing or postmarking and is entirely clean. A couple creases in the upper right account for the assigned grade. This is an exceptional 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 $300. Estimate (open).
