Identify this postcard?

Post by deadballfreak on Tue Jan 08, 2013 10:52 pm

Picked this up on ebay a few years back for a couple of bucks. Can't find out anything about it. Danny Moeller was a Washington Senator 1912-16. I wonder if this is a one of a kind or was there an issue of these for the Senators team? A Walter Johnson would be pretty cool.

The back says National Photo Co. Washington DC. Divided back. Not mailed.

back scan would probably help with the ID

Not much to see there. Extremely faded.

I bet there are other players, based on how the name is printed at the bottom. Great postcard, thanks for sharing!

Are you a fellow pc collector?

Not to say there aren't other players, but out of curiosity, what is it about how the name is printed that would make you think there would be other players?

Just a hunch, but from my experience you don't often see one-off rppc's that list the player's name with a period like that unless it's part of a larger grouping. Kind of reminds me of the Cleveland Souenvir Shop postcards...

Holy Mother of God, that is a beautiful postcard.

I can see your point that if they put the last name, that would mean they are trying to distinguish him from other players. But I wonder if the other players are known to exist?

It would probably take some legwork to find out. Not my forte, the postcard world, although I do admire them.

Bicem, I love that "Cottontop" Turner! I am not a serious PC collector, but when I see one that I like from the deadball era I try to get it. I have 6 of the 1906 Ullman Giants and several of the Dietsche Tigers and Cubs. A few old stadium PCs and 20s exhibits.
