Graded VG 40 by SGC. Outstanding sample card of Chicago White Sox shortstop Buck Weaver, one of the infamous "Eight Men Out," who later conspired to throw the 1919 World Series, from the rare and highly regarded PC758 Max Stein Postcards set issued from 1909 to 1916. Baseball photographer Max Stein's classic photo-finish postcards are among the most revered of all early twentieth-century postcards. This postcard has an interesting artistic design on the front, as it captures Weaver in three different poses: a casual stance with arms crossed, in a pitching follow-thru pose, and greeting the ladies in the stadium crowd. Bright and crisp, both front and back, with light wear to the corners. It presents much better than the assigned grade and has been downgraded due to a light crease near the lower right corner. The card has never been mailed and has no writing on its traditional postcard reverse. An ideal sample card featuring one of the game's most infamous stars, from one of the most unusual and substantial of all 1910-era baseball postcard issues. Dimensions: 3.5 x 5.5 inches. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
