Graded VG 40 by SGC. Extremely striking example of Hall of Famer Eddie Collins in a classic batting stance from the highly prized 1907 PC805 Novelty Cutlery postcard set. This card is all the more significant as it is one of Eddie Collins' earliest issued cards, and in the eyes of some (depending on one's definition of a card) even qualifying as his rookie card. The PC805 series is universally recognized as one of the most desirable of all baseball postcard issues. These cards have always been appreciated by collectors both for their extreme rarity and distinctive style. This very attractive mid-grade example of Eddie Collins is one of only fifteen Hall of Famers in the Novelty Cutlery set. The card has a few small, light creases (mainly to the right of Collins' image and in the lower left corner), and even corner wear. It is very crisp and clean. The reverse has some light spots of toning, and has never been mailed. This card has an appearance far superior to its SGC-assigned grade. This is a very impressive-looking Hall of Famer example from this rare and elegantly designed set. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $823
