Graded VG 40 by SGC. This is the only example graded at this level, with just one graded higher. Outstanding PC760 Rose Postcard example of Hooks Wiltse of the New York Giants. Among advanced collectors, Rose Postcards are regarded as one of the most striking and magnificently designed baseball-card sets ever produced. They are also extremely rare. Crisp image and bold colors, four corners showing light touches of wear, and a postally-unused reverse. Downgraded due to a faint oval mark on the reverse. This is a very attractive example from one of the era's most classic sets. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
