Presented is a very attractive collection of three postcards (half the set) from the 1913 M101-3 Sporting News Postcards series, highlighted by Hall of Famers Walter Johnson and Rube Marquard, each graded and encapsulated by SGC (submitted by REA). A total of six cards comprise a complete set, which was available as a premium from the Sporting News. The newspaper is well known to card collectors for several 1910-era sets. Each postcard in the set measures 3.5 x 5.5 inches, and features a duotone color photo on front and a traditional postcard reverse. The collection consists of the following: Vean Gregg (GOOD+ 35), Walter Johnson/Street (HOF, POOR 10), and Rube Marquard (HOF, GOOD+ 35). Each of the postcards has never been mailed. This is a very attractive group of these rare and distinctive postcards, which could serve as the foundation for the assembly of a complete set. Total: 3 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
