1912 Boston Red Sox Real-Photo Team Postcard
Starting Bid - $400.00 , Sold For - $587.50
Graded VG 3 (MK) by PSA. Presented is an exceptional real-photo postcard featuring the 1912 Boston Red Sox. This is one of the premier team postcards of the era in terms of production quality, photo clarity, and design. The postcard pictures the Boston Red Sox in a classic team photo including Hall of Famers Tris Speaker and Harry Hooper, and superstar pitcher Joe Wood. Each member of the club is identified in print on his image. "Season 1912 - Champions Of The American League - Boston Red Sox" appears in white letters below. This card was produced by The Photo Art Shop of Swampsott, Massachusetts. There are no other team cards in the series, but one other real-photo Photo Art Shop baseball postcard (featuring Walter Johnson and Joe Wood shaking hands) is known to exist. A handwritten pencil notation on the traditional postcard back reads "Hurrah for the Pink Stockings." The card (5-3/8 x 3-1/2 inches) has never been mailed. Close examination reveals very minor creases and light corner and edge wear, which accounts for its technically Vg condition, despite its otherwise overall Excellent appearance. This is a sharp-looking card. An outstanding example of a significant rarity commemorating the 1912 Red Sox championship season. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $587.50
