    1905 Rotograph Postcards Clarke Griffith SGC Fair 1.5 - Only Three SGC-Graded Examples! From the John Esch collection. Of the numerous postcard issue of the early 20th Century there are ones that are rare... and then there are RARE. The PC782 Rotograph series from 1905 are among the rarest and the real shame is these real-photo cards feature some of the finest portrait images of any series. The set showcases ten player/team cards limited to New York Giants and Highlanders. Our offered card features HoF Manager Clarke Griffith, who's professional league career dates back to the late 1880's. Used in the mail with ink writing front/back. Physically nicer. Graded SGC Fair 1.5. One of only three graded by SGC! The lone FAIR with one higher. Very few have come up for auction over the years.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $1,500 - up.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
