Unique advertising card for "Masseur & Trainer," H.P. Wolfe featuring pitchers and catchers of the St. Louis Browns during spring training. A matching cabinet photograph appearing elsewhere in this auction features the very same image and the presence of both Rube Waddell, in his first season with the club, and Tubby Spencer, in his final season with the club, conclusively dates this photo to 1908. Other players we were able to readily identify include: Bill Dinneen, Hobe Ferris, and Barney Pelty in the top row, with Harry Howell holding a dog next to Waddell up front and Jack Powell standing to the extreme right. Corners of card are moderately rounded and paper exhibits gentle toning throughout, presenting in FAIR condition overall.
