"Here is the place to see good baseball and big crowds," proclaims the handwritten message on the postmarked reverse. We couldn't agree more—and the "House of Thrills" never looked better than when captured on its Opening Day in this beautiful color scene by noted Pittsburgh photographer R.W. Johnston. Measuring 11 x 3-1/2", the postcard is captioned, "Forbes Field, Pittsburg, Pa. Attendance June 30, 1909, 30,338 Carnegie Institute / Copyt. 1909 by R.W. Johnston Studios of Pittsburg / Pub. by Singer Pen Store, Pittsburg, PA." Heavy creasing on the centerfold, otherwise EX.
