Poking around looking for some baseball picture postcards and found some cool ones. Here's one from around 1905.......

How common are these? I don't think I have ever seen one before ? it seems like in the early years of the 20th century that they would have been fairly common place with the explosive growth of baseball in that era ,,but survival has to be very limited .

Cool baseball theme card!

Mailed Aug 2, 1905? Denver Colorado

I am still a knocking around yet.
I am sorry I could not answer before.
I have been to bussie (busy).
from a freind S.R.

He must have made a somewhat favorable impression, because Miss Clarcke
did not throw the card away!

I doubt that these baseball postcards are very common today.

bobby - I assume you know what is what since you're the forum DAD etc....

I collect baseball cards, but have no knowledge of what you've posted. BUT based on what you've shown, I'd be careful with that. It looks like something that could be worth something.

I'm guessing you know that already :) By the way, are those autographs on the item or what... Just a curious piece.
