The St. Louis Stars (of Cincinnati) are shown here on a brown sepia advertising card with good luck swastikas, well-before their later, obscene use, prominent.  The image has come through in fine shape but it appears to be a photo of a photo with resulting loss of detail.  The edges are a little chippy here and there  and the reverse has been addressed but not stamped or postally used. The team address was, interestingly enough, care of "The Bill Board", which we know as Billboard magazine (founded in Cincinnati) and used to feature a mail forwarding service for some 42,000 traveling performers at its peak.
