1908 PC760 Rose Company Postcard Collection (12) - Complete Philadelphia Phillies Team Set - Newly Discovered!
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $9,600
For more information about the Rose Postcard set, please follow the link below to a comprehensive article recently published by vintage-card collector and Rose Postcard scholar Jerry Spillman.
Collection of twelve different Philadelphia Phillies cards from the PC760 Rose Postcard set, one of the rarest and most beautifully designed baseball-card sets ever produced. Entirely new to the modern collecting world, this remarkable group of postcards was discovered by our consignor among a large nonsport-postcard collection. The twelve postcards represent the complete Phillies team set. This collection consists of the following: Bransfield, Brown (this card pictures HOF pitcher Mordecai Brown, although it is supposed to be Buster Brown), Corridon, Dooin, Doolin, Grant, Knabe, Magee, McQuillen, Osborne, Sparks, and Titus. The offered cards are all beautifully preserved. Bright and clean, with flawless portrait images and very light corner wear. Seven of the cards have a small, vertical indentation in top center of the card, almost as though they were held together by a paperclip at one point in time, and Dooin has minor creasing in the lower left portion of the card. All others present in overall Vg-Ex to Ex condition from the front. Seven of the cards (Brown, Corridon, Dooin, Magee, McQuillen, Sparks, and Titus) are postally used (postmarked between September 23 and December 4, 1908) and sent from Philadelphia to the same recipient in Douglassville, Pennsylvania. The remaining five cards are bright and entirely clean on the reverse, having never been mailed and bearing no writing on the traditional postcard reverse. This is a remarkable collection of newly-discovered cards. These are extraordinary examples from this beautiful and rare set, which would make outstanding additions to any PC760 set, Philadelphia Phillies, or vintage baseball-postcard collection. Total: 12 cards. SOLD FOR $9,600
