Graded EX 60 by SGC. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Stunning PC760 Rose Company Postcard example of Hall of Famer Jack Chesbro in uniform. As can easily be seen, this is a tremendous card! It is also one of the best of all cards of Jack Chesbro. Jack Chesbro won 41 games in 1904, his highest single-season total ever, but it was his 12th loss that everyone remembered. On the final day of the season, the Highlanders were trailing the Red Sox by a game and a half, with a doubleheader scheduled. Chesbro started the first contest and was battling in a tie game when his wild pitch allowed the winning run to score. The Yankees never came as close to a pennant in their next sixteen seasons. Among advanced collectors the Rose Postcards issue is regarded as one of the most striking and magnificently designed baseball-card sets ever produced. The offered card is crisp and clean, with no creases or wrinkles, a flawless image, and light touches of wear to the corners. The card has never been mailed and has no writing on its traditional postcard reverse. This is an outstanding Hall of Famer example from one of the era's most classic sets.
Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000++.
