    Possibly Unique 1905-1906 Roger Bresnahan/Christy Mathewson RPPC SGC 40 VG 3. Lying in wait for over a century to make its debut is this certainly extremely rare if not very possibly unique real photo post card featuring HoFers Roger Bresnahan and Christy Mathewson. The standard sized post card has a posed scene of Bresnahan and Mathewson in their distinctive black "NY" New York Giants uniforms worn for the World Series in 1905 and as road option in 1906. Graded SGC 40 VG 3, the rarity has some soiling, light creases and an imperfection in the image that is in the actual print meaning it was part of the original negative. Regardless of the condition, this is possibly a one-of-a-kind item that based on our research has never been offered before. Considering the image was never touched up and does not fill the entire front as you would expect and sees on almost all post cards, and originates from a player collection it is likely this was produced at the personal request of Bresnahan and never saw any level of public circulation. Letter of provenance from the Bresnahan family.
