    Description

    1910 PC796 "Sepia Postcards" Ty Cobb & Honus Wagner SGC 35 Good+ 2.5. This auction features a near-complete set of PC796 postcards. Offered is one of the most popular entries from this scarce edition that depicts Ty Cobb and Honus Wagner shaking hands probably just prior to the 1909 World Series. It is a fantastic image of two baseball legends meeting for probably the first time. Both men do appear to be smiling but one has to wonder how long that lasted after the cameras went away. Very clean example that was never used as mail correspondence. An extremely faint crease (short) at the top (front) and a very small reverse surface scuff in the upper right along with some modest corner wear accounts for the grade. Graded SGC 35 Good+ 2.5. This is one of only eight total graded by SGC.
