Real-photo postcard capturing 20 members of the 1907 American League Champion Detroit Tigers in a classic team pose. The lettering along the right border reads "Pennant Winners American League 1907." Each player is identified in print along the base by means of a corresponding number that appears upon his image, including Ty Cobb, manager Hughie Jennings, Sam Crawford, George Mullin, and Germany Schaefer. The publisher's name, "Heimer," appears in the lower right corner. 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, which has not been addressed or mailed, displays a light creasing and an area of toning on the reverse. . Encapsulated and graded GD 2 by SGC. Despite the flaws, the photo offers outstanding clarity and contrast, and the card presents at a higher level than suggested by its technically accurate grade. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
