Among the rarest baseball postcard of the pre-war era is the set of New York Giants players done by the Underwood and Underwood company. To date, we can find only four players known to exist with this example of Hooks Wiltse being the fifth. The image is clean and the postcard is really nice with a tiny corner crease on the upper left and some faint remnants of pencil writing on the back from being in a newspaper archive (actually the Underwood archive). Offered here for the first time ever and guaranteed authentic, this is an important new discovery for the baseball postcard collector!
