Offered is a rare 1907 "Our Home Team" foldout postcard featuring the Detroit Tigers. This fragile post card has portraits of pennant winners Cobb, Coughlin, Crawford, Donovan, Downs, Jennings, Jones, Killian, Killefer, McIntyre, Mullin, O'Leary, Payne, Rossman, Schaefer, Schmidt, Suggs, Summers, Thomas, Willet, Winter and the Tigers logo under a red paper embossed flap.
