Not long for the Nation’s Capital, the Washington Senators struggled on the diamond and at the turnstiles in 1954, when this scenic photo postcard was issued. One of a scant few survivors, this 5-3/8 x 3-3/8” correspondence piece features a black-and-white likeness of the since-razed Griffith Stadium. On the reverse, an “APR 23 1954” postmark is accompanied by a typewritten request to meet at the Shoreham Hotel before the July 20 Senators-Orioles game. The rare keepsake shows minor wear consistent with post office handling/delivery.
