Description



Grand venues where the art of baseball played out are the focus of this vintage postcard lot of (50). Dating from 1928-1975, this attractive group of baseball stadium postcards has aged gracefully to average (VG-EX to EX-MT+) in condition. These favored souvenirs make great reminders of places visited and in this case they pay tribute to famous diamond palaces making for great collectability. The oldest of these keepsakes is postmarked 1928 and features an inset of New York Giants manager John McGraw over the Polo Grounds. Providing the rest of the collectible wallop are a dozen linen types and an impressive array of real photo cards ending with a 1975 remembrance of Connie Mack Stadium.
