The PC796 Sepia Postcard set consists of 25 subjects, printed by an unknown manufacturer. The cards feature, as noted, sepia photographs, a bit mild in tone, with some aggressive outlining resulting in a stark, yet appealing image being revealed.  There's a load of Hall of Fame players included, Mathewson being one of the most prominent. The SGC grade of 2.5 seems a tad harsh, as the postcard looks nice overall, with nice centering and a clean appearance.  The corners exhibit light rounding and the postally unused and ink-free address side looks clean as well, with some light but even toning.
