1908-1911 PC743 H. H. Bregstone Postcards Art Fromme

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $2,133

Graded EX 60 by SGC. Rare example of St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Art Fromme from the PC743 H. H. Bregstone Postcards series. Noted as "among the rarest of early 20th century baseball player postcards" in The Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards, this is the first Bregstone that we have offered during the past ten years!. According to the SGC Population Report, only five examples (of any player) have ever been graded by SGC (PSA has not graded any). This is the only example of Fromme ever graded and the highest grade ever awarded to any Bregstone by SGC. This series features exclusively members of the St. Louis Browns and Cardinals with each player depicted in a sepia photo posed on a ball field. The offered Bregstone postcard is bright and crisp with tremendous photo clarity and light, even wear to the corners. The postcard reverse is free of any writing or postmarking and displays only light soiling commensurate with its age. This is an exceptional high-grade example from this rare series, which would make a superb addition to any advanced postcard or sample-card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500++. SOLD FOR $2,133
