Sporting News Postcards

This small set of six postcards can be dated fairly accurately to 1912 though often they are check-listed as either 1913 or 1912-1915. They are catalogued as either PC757 or M101-3. The only characteristic pointing to an earlier date might be that Bresnahan was dealt to the Cubs in 1912 and Street ended his career in 1912. For all other players the date of 1912 seems right.

Pictured here are the Bresnahan and Cobb cards formerly in my collection.

The Checklist:

Roger P. Bresnahan
Ty Cobb
Edward Collins
Vean Gregg
Walter Johnson & Charles Street
