Scarce real-photo postcard capturing twenty members of the 1907 Brooklyn Superbas in a classic team pose. This is the first example of this particular team postcard we have ever offered and we can only recall having seen a handful of others at auction. Each member of the club is identified in print along the base, including owner Charles Ebbets prominently seated in the middle, Nap Rucker,
Patsy Donovan, Jim Pastorius, Al Burch, and Harry Lumley. The caption reads “Brooklyn Baseball Team - Season of 1907.” The postcard (5.5 x 3.5 inches), which has been addressed and mailed, displays a number of light-to-moderate creases, heavy corner wear, and a crisp image. Graded POOR 10 by SGC. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
