The 25-card PC796 "Sepia" postcard set features fifteen Hall of Famers, but the Cobb/Wagner dual postcard is the key.  Featuring the two superstars shaking hands and smiling, likely at the start of the 1909 World Series, the card is one of the more desirable of all mainstream baseball postcards.  Our use of the term "mainstream," however, is probably a misnomer, as the cards are particularly scarce - this is one of just seven examples to have been graded by SGC.  The scarcity in this case leads to desirability, as the card simply does not make itself available with any degree of frequency. This example is a brand-new discovery, fresh to the hobby and submitted to SGC by us.  The GOOD 2 grade is a result of honest wear, some minor staining here and there, and overall toning, though none of the wear is particularly distracting.  An outstanding example of a highly-coveted card, new to the hobby.
