    Description

    1908 Red Sox Foldout Photos Postcard from The Casey Stengel Collection. Rare Beantown issue dates from the Boston franchise's first year as the Red Sox in 1908 after having played as the Americans from 1901-07.

    The postcard measures 3.5x5.5" and depicts three images on the front: John I. Taylor (owner), Hugh McBreen (treasurer), and "Boston American League Grounds" (a.k.a. Huntington Avenue American League Baseball Grounds), which was the predecessor to Fenway Park and the site of the first World Series game and perfect game.

    Also on the front is a picture book which measures 2.5" in diameter (when closed) which opens out to 2x23", revealing Cy Young and nineteen other members of the Boston team. Interestingly, the cover of the foldout reads "Boston Red Sox Americans," nicely documenting the transition from 1907 to 1908.

    Back text reads "Copyright 1908 by J. F. Furlong, Boston." General wear, overall EX condition.
