Description

Despite being swept by the dreaded Chicago Cubs in the 1907 World Series, the Detroit Tigers of that year still adorn Cooperstown with three plaques, Hughie (Ee-Yah) Jennings, "Wahoo" Sam Crawford, and the "Georgia Peach," Tyrus Raymond Cobb. Presented is a turn-of-the-century 1907 Taylor Detroit Tigers baseball postcard. Postmarked in Detroit just two days after the hometown Tigers lost the World Series, the writer laments on the front, "What care the Tigers for the championship-they won the pennant. Just a little hard luck for the boys, that's all". The card is crease-free, has negligible wear on the corners, while the postmark slightly protrudes through the front. A poignant documentary of pre-war baseball and those who helped shape the national game.
