Famous & Barr was a St. Louis haberdashery that latched onto the M101-4 and M101-5 derived issues in 1916. Scarce overall, the reverse printing can be found reading down from the top or up from the bottom and this one sports the latter variety. Graded by PSA as a VG 3 (MK), very light remnants of a rubber stamp appear to have been the cause of the qualifier.  The card looks to be a very nice 3 even with this. There's some slight rounding or corners and a couple of faint print lines running horizontally, while the reverse has a nice, dark store logo and text, with some minimal surface wear. Hall of Famer Max Carey is the subject and is one of only four graded by PSA, with another two at SGC.
