1908 American League Publishing Company Postcard Elmer Flick - Collister & Sayle Overprint!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $600

Presented is an outstanding sample card from the 1908 American League Publishing Company Postcard series featuring Hall of Famer Elmer Flick of the Cleveland Naps. Flick is pictured in a fielding pose on the front of the postcard, with a small portrait in an oval alongside and statistical and biographical information at the bottom. A green overprint for Collister & Sayle Athletic Outfitters of Cleveland is present in the right corner. The traditional postcard reverse features the Naps' home and away schedule on the left side (when held horizontally as intended). Encapsulated as Authentic by SGC due to a clipped lower left corner, the card otherwise presents as Very Good overall, with a crisp image, light corner wear (slightly more rounding in the lower right), and an almost imperceptible piece of excess paper on the card front. The reverse is addressed, stamped, and postmarked September 4, 1908. This is a very attractive sample card from this rare issue that would be a worthy addition to any advanced postcard, Hall of Fame, or type-card collection. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $600
