Circa 1910 Philadelphia Athletics Team Composite Postcard
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $690.00
Sepia-toned real photo postcard of the 1910 World Champion Philadelphia Athletics features 22 members of the team, each identified in small type, surrounding a large portrait of manager Connie Mack. This club marked the beginning of the American League's first great dynasty. The Philadelphia Athletics would win four pennants and three World Series titles from 1910 to 1914. The team is also noted for its legendary "$100,000 infield" consisting of third baseman Frank Baker, shortstop Jack Barry, second baseman Eddie Collins, and first baseman Stuffy McInnis. The striking design of this extreme rarity contributes to making it one of the best baseball postcards of the era. The postcard has been mailed, with the stamp postmarked on the reverse "Philadelphia Sep 1, 1913." It is interesting to note that the postcard is addressed to a "Mr. Charlie Mack." 3.5 x 5.25 inches. Excellent condition. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $690.00
