1907 A.C. Dietsche Detroit Tigers Postcards
This 1907-09 Dietsche Detroit Tigers Postcard Complete Set has 15 cards and was produced by the A.C. Dietsche Postcard Company of Detroit to commemorate the Tigers’ A.L. pennant winning seasons of 1907, 1908 and 1909. The A.C. Dietsche baseball postcard set features 15 different players from the Detroit Tiger and distributed for three consecutive years.
The unnumbered A.C. Dietsche Postcards measure 3-1/2” by 5-1/2” and feature a black and white in-action photo of the player in front of a black background. The 1907 A.C. Dietsche Detroit Tigers Postcards display a only player photograph, while the 1908 and 1909 postcards also the have player’s last name.
The 1907 Dietsche Detroit Tigers Set contains Ty Cobb’s true rookie card, which has a batting, and a significantly rarer, fielding variation. It appears the Dietsche Cobb fielding pose was replaced with the batting pose early in the print run. There are three Detriot Tigers Hall-of-Fame players in the A.C. Dietsche Postcard Set: Ty Cobb, Sam Crawford and manager Hughie Jennings
