1908-1911 H. H. Bregstone Postcard Louis Criger

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,200

Graded VG 40 by SGC. Rare example of St. Louis Browns catcher Louis Criger 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 only the second Bregstone Postcard example that we have offered during the past fifteen years! According to the SGC Population Report, only eight examples (of any player) have ever been graded by SGC (PSA has not graded any). This is the only example of Criger ever graded. This series features exclusively members of the St. Louis Browns and Cardinals with each player depicted in a sepia-toned 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. A very small and faint "50" is erased just above the stampbox, which accounts for the assigned grade despite an overall Excellent appearance. This is an exceptional sample from this extremely rare series, which would make a superb addition to any advanced postcard or type-card collection. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,200
