Measuring 5-1/2 x 3-1/2" and printed on Kodak stock, these postcards put the "real" in real photo. So much so that from the front they appear as stellar glossy snapshots. Close scrutiny of the scoreboard reveals origins of a 7-6 Senators win over the Browns on May 21, 1949, with Mickey Haefner on the mound and Eddie Pellagrini and Stan Spence (formerly a Senator) at home plate. The classic Chesterfield advertising is also worthy of note. Two of the three examples have pencil notations on the reverse, with one reading, "Upper deck toward C.F. before fence was moved in and scoreboard raised, and bullpen in corner next to where scoreboard is."
