The Sporty Postal Card Company of Newark, NJ, published three different versions of these team-composite postcards with caricature-drawn managers: Highlanders (Hal Chase), A's (Connie Mack) and Giants (John McGraw). Each is extremely seldom seen in any condition, and a mid-grade Highlanders example sold at auction in 2013 for over $1,300. What's more, we believe that no Giants example has surfaced at a major auction house in over a decade. This offering measures the correct 3-1/2 x 5-1/2" and rates EX with a surface indentation mark at the left edge. It features McGraw, Marquard, Merkle, Crandall, Snodgrass, Mathewson (interestingly, the only face in profile view), Lathan, Hartley, Wills, Devlin, Meyers, Fletcher, Donlin, Doyle, Murry, Bridwell, Wiltse, Drucke, Ames, Devore, Wilson, Becker. A period notation on the reverse reads, "Master Marshall Thomasson / Atlanta, Georgia."
