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.  

Consigned by a dedicated collector of Bregstone Postcards, this is the only example in this auction to feature a Cardinals player, pitcher Art Fromme.  The highest-graded of two examples assessed by SGC (none have been graded by PSA), the image quality is exceptionally strong, with remarkable contrast for this issue.  Light corner softness keeps the card from a higher holder, though with an issue as rare as Bregstones, technical grade is irrelevant and eye appeal is critical.
