Attractive midgrade H.H. Bregstone postcard of first baseman Tom Jones.  The Bregstone postcard issue contains photographic images of members of the St. Louis Browns and Cardinals, and is rare enough that poses and variations remain as of yet undiscovered.  Catalogued as PC743, they are considered among the most rare postcards featuring individual players from multiple teams.  

The card was one of a significant find of Bregstone postcards we received on consignment from the family of former Browns pitcher Barney Pelty.  A slight image fade is consistent with the issue, though the clarity is strong.  Players in the background are blurry from motion, which creates an interesting effect.  The only example graded by PSA, with just two low-grade specimens graded by SGC.
