1912 Photo Art Shop Boston Red Sox Team Real-Photo Postcard - Highest Graded!

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,320

Graded EX+ 5.5 by PSA. This is the ONLY example graded at this level with none higher! Tremendous ultra high-grade 1912 Photo Art Shop real-photo postcard featuring the 1912 Boston Red Sox. Real-photo postcards don't get much better than this! (The postcard perhaps most reminiscent of this 1912 card is the 1915 Red Sox real-photo team postcard, which has a recent auction record in the very same condition of $95,600 due to its inclusion of a young rookie named Babe Ruth). This is one of the premier team postcards of the era in terms of production quality, photo clarity, and design. The postcard captures the Boston Red Sox in a classic team photo, including Hall of Famers Tris Speaker and Harry Hooper, and superstar pitcher Joe Wood. Each member of the club is identified in print on his image. "Season 1912 - Champions Of The American League - Boston Red Sox" appears in white letters below. This card was produced by The Photo Art Shop of Swampsott, Massachusetts. There are no other team cards in the series, but one other real-photo Photo Art Shop baseball postcard (featuring Walter Johnson and Joe Wood shaking hands) is known to exist. Perfectly crisp and clean, with a flawless surface and four strong corners. This card is a gem! The card (5-3/8 x 3-1/2 inches) has never been mailed. This is an extraordinary, sharp-looking, and significant rarity commemorating the 1912 Red Sox championship season, that would be a welcome addition to even the most advanced collection.  Reserve $300. Estimate $500++. SOLD FOR $1,320
