    1910 PC796 Sepia Postcards Ty Cobb & Honus Wagner PSA EX 5 - Pop One, One Higher. It wouldn't be until the 1950's that the dual-player card became a popular marketing tool to sell cards. Although there are some classics like the Mantle/Aaron "World Series Batting Foes" and the '68 Super Stars card featuring a trio of 500 Home Run Club members. It was forty years prior that one of, if not the, most exciting dual-player card was produced for the PC796 Sepia Postcard series of 1910. The scene includes Ty Cobb and Honus Wagner. By 1910 Cobb was a well established star about th embark on the greatest decade of his career. Honus "Honas" Wagner who was by 1910 accepted as an all-time great and coming off a 1909 season which saw him lead the NL in RBIs (100), doubles (39) and batting average (.339). The two titans appear to be jovial but the hand shake, likely just prior to the 1909 World Series, is awkward to say the least. It is a fantastic image of two baseball legends meeting probably for the first time.

    Graded PSA EX 5. One of only seven total graded by PSA. This is the lone card graded EX with one higher. The PC796 set is a scarce entry with just 45 total cards graded by PSA. Our offered card is a very nice example with no evidence of ever being mounted in an album and was never used as mail correspondence. For the series, there are three cards graded EX-MT making this one of the finer recorded examples.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
