Rare H.H. Bregstone postcard of pitcher Bill Graham.  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 the first to have been graded by PSA; just one additional has been graded by SGC and this is the highest.  Extremely well-preserved, with some light corner wear visible, along with some chipping at the bottom corners.  Still, an exceptional example of a very rare postcard.
