    1908/09 Rose Company Napoleon Lajoie SGC 20 Fair 1.5. As one of the greatest talents of the dead-ball era it comes as no surprise that Napoleon Lajoie appears in a majority of the baseball trading and post card promotions of the era. Few generate as much excitement as this card though coming from the scarce Rose Company post card issue of 1908. A check of our database shows only a few examples have been made available at auction within the last 15 years. He is without question on of the top HoFers in the series. Offered is a very nice example graded SGC 20 Fair 1.5. With some corner wear and no creases or wrinkles, the assessment come down to a slight surface scratch, one edge "ding" in the lower right and a single tack-hole in the upper left. This is one of two at this grade level (with one higher) from a total SGC population of only six. PSA has just one (qualified) Lajoie on their census report.
