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.  This example is a beautiful one, featuring Hall of Famer Bobby Wallace.  Though the card has been graded VG-EX 4 by PSA, the image is striking, boasting exceptional contrast and clarity.  The only example graded by PSA, with a single example graded POOR 1 by SGC, this is one of just two Browns Hall of Famers in the Bregstone issue.  A truly wonderful example, certainly one of the most desirable of all the Bregstones that have been discovered to date.
