Rare and exceptionally attractive promotional postcard for Royal Tailored clothing featuring New York Americans player/manager, and Hall of Famer, Frank Chance. This postcard displays bold color and intricate detail, advertising "the most exclusive, high-priced tailor." The card displays light wear on the corners, a small crease near the lower left corner, and a paper pinch on both the left and top edge. The reverse is postally used and has bold black printing. Outstanding visual presentation for this rare advertising postcard, which appears to be a "one-card set." This is one of only several examples of this Frank Chance "Royal Tailored" postcard we have ever seen, and we have always considered it one of the most distinctive and well-made player-endorsement postcards of the era. Dimensions: 3.5 x 5.5 inches. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
