Gorgeous H.H. Bregstone postcard of third baseman Hobe Ferris.  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.  The image quality is spectacular, particularly for this issue which often features faded images.  Some light corner wear is evident, with a few slight surface abrasions reducing the technical grade of the card.  A visually pleasing card from an extremely rare issue.
