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 "Iron Man" Joe McGinnity in uniform. As can easily be seen, this is a tremendous card! It is also one of the best of all cards of Joe McGinnity. McGinnity was one of the greatest pitching legends of his era. As a rookie he won 28 games, and for the next decade he averaged 25 victories each season, pitching over 300 innings every year but one. He earned his nickname by on occasion pitching both ends of a doubleheader. 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++.
