1908 American League Publishing Company Postcard George Stovall - Collister & Sayle Overprint!

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $420

Presented is an outstanding sample card from the 1908 American League Publishing Company Postcard series featuring George Stovall of the Cleveland Naps. Stovall 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 purple 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 an irregular cut along the bottom border, the card presents as Very Good to Excellent overall, with a crisp image, light corner wear, and a few light, insignificant stains on front. The reverse displays no writing or postmark. This is a very attractive sample card from this rare issue that would be a worthy addition to any advanced postcard or type-card collection. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $420
