    Description

    Early 20th Century Roger Bresnahan Post Card Collection (5). One of the most exciting elements of a player collection is the inclusion of rare and maybe unique pieces that one has never seen before as they are sometimes produced at the request of the player and not sold to the public. Four of the five post cards in this gallery of early 20th Century post cards fits that description. The gallery includes: 1) C. 1910 American Art printed PC of the Toledo Baseball Club. Bresnahan (front row, center) is pictured in his Chicago Cubs sweater, a team he played for from 1913 to 1915. He played for Toledo from 1916 to 1918 and 1921 dating the piece to the 1913 to 1918 era. The copy reads, "Toledo Base Ball Club, American Ass'n In Front of Hamby's Well, Dawson Springs, KY. (SGC 10 Poor 1); 2) C. 1910 Real Photo Post Card (RPPC) of Roger Bresnahan (far right) and a dozen others in street clothes. (SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5); 3) C. 1910 RPPC of Roger Bresnahan and two other players. (SGC 60 EX 5); 4) C. 1910 RPPC of Bresnahan (center) with two other players. (SGC 60 EX 5) and 5) C. 1905 RPPC with a portrait of Bresnahan in formal attire. Logo for Scherer Studio of New York is embossed on the left. (SGC 55 VG/EX+ 4.5).
