Description

The 1910 Philadelphia Athletics rode a 102-48 record en route to the first World Championship in franchise history. The squad was guided by the legendary Connie Mack and led by four Hall of Famers including Eddie Collins, Frank Baker, Chief Bender and Eddie Plank. Highlighted by period captioning and uniforms, presented is a 1910 Philadelphia Athletics foldout postcard. Published by Berger of Chicago, this post card has been addressed but not postally used. The covers are worn with stress on the binding and closing flap along with numerous creases and age spotting. The foldout binding is intact, although some of pages are separated, one of them revealing moderate tearing. The entire Athletics lineup is captured individually, in respective fielding, pitching and batting poses. Difficult beyond measure, this souvenir is a premier keepsake for the vintage Philadelphia collector.
