Description

    Early 1900's John McGraw Original Mounted Photograph--Used for 1905 PC782 Rotograph Postcard. Marvelous early photograph of the man who held the reins of the New York Giants through three decades of glory dates to the earliest seasons of that service, as the image would come to fame as the source for the coveted 1905 PC782 Rotograph. Just two of those cards have sold within a major auction in the past fifteen years, and the original image is even more scarce--we have never seen another. The 5.75x7.75" photo is expertly rendered and affixed to a period mount of identical size, exhibiting minor dampstaining at left and light edge and corner wear, none of which presents a signficant distraction. The market for original photographs utilized for important trading cards is one of the hottest in the hobby, and we expect this offering to serve as further evidence of that fact.

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am regarding the sale of my hockey jersey. You were great to work with, you answered all my phone calls and e-mails in a prompt manner, and you did a great job marketing the jersey.
