1908-09 Rose Company Postcard
Graded by PSA as AUTHENTIC
Realized Price: $8,910
One of the two most valuable and important issues within the gorgeous Rose Company postcard set of 1908-1909. Featuring legendary Pirates Hall-of-Famer Honus Wagner, this is one of just four examples certified by PSA in all grades.
The offered copy is very, very attractive. It has outstanding surface quality, a crystal-clear boldly contrasted image of Wagner, rich gold embossing, strong corners, and some light toning on the reverse. A couple of the edges have a very slight "waviness" to the cut, most likely accounting for the Authentic designation. Overall strong Ex/Mt to Near Mint appearance.
