One of a kind! Rare postcards featuring the 1909 American League Champs!

This is a 1909 Topping and Company near complete postcard set.  It’s only missing one card, Germany Schaefer. It does, however, contain the three Detroit Tigers Hall-of-Famers who played for the 1909 AL champs:  Ty Cobb, Sam Crawford, and Hughie Jennings.

It features the 1909 Tigers team that would win 98 games in route to a World Series showdown with the Pittsburgh Pirates.  The matchup would culminate in a loss after 7 games at the hands of Honus Wagner.  Just imagine how amazing the Cobb vs. Wagner pairing would’ve been to partake in.

So, how rare are these cards?

Of the 31 graded by PSA, this set contains 20!  Many of these 20 are not only the highest graded examples, but the ONLY graded examples from PSA.  All cards have great eye appeal, with fairly clean fronts and unmarked backs. 

SGC hasn’t graded many of these either.  Their population reports show that they have encased 48 of the postcards.  This means that this set contains 20 of 79 known graded examples between the two companies.  Altogether, this is the most complete offering of this set to ever hit the market!

The 1909 Topping & Co. Detroit Tigers Postcard set was released with 21 unnumbered postcards.  The fronts are titled “Tiger Stars” and include the player name and position.  Player faces are affixed in the center of a yellow bordered, six pointed star.  The back of the postcards are fairly generic, and look like a typical postcard would look.
