Fantastic photo postcard of May Fay, of the All American Ladies Base Ball Club in full pitching follow through.  This look somewhat like an early Exhibit card with its striking image and composition. The front has some smudging and some minor corner wear, mostly avoiding the central image. The reverse is unused except for a penciled $65.00 at the upper left of the correspondence field. Beckett dates these to 1908 and indicates a series of at least five subjects was issued.
