Commercially-issued postcard featuring the identical image of the 1908 St. Louis Browns featured in the Real Photo Postcard in Lot #222 in this auction.  The black and white postcard has a more tightly-cropped image, with the players identified in the lower border.  Hall of Famers Rube Waddell and Bobby Wallace appear in the photo.  Graded PR 1 by SGC due to overall wear, most notably a spot of paper loss near Hobe Ferris' legs in the front row, extreme right.  Some creasing and surface wear is also evident.  The only example of this postcard we have handled, featuring two Hall of Famers, as consigned by the family of former Browns pitcher Barney Pelty (front row, second from left).
