COMMENTS / CONDITION: Offered is an approximately 3-1/2"x5-1/2" real photo postcard of Si Johnson, pictured in his Cincinnati Reds uniform circa 1935. The original photo was taken by George Burke in 1935, but this card was produced some time later (no earlier than the 1950's judging by the standard Kodak back). Comes from a large collection of such postcards that we will be listing over the coming months, all having standard postcard backs but being postally unused. Wear on these, if any, is mostly confined to minor corner and edge wear, but see scans for further details including condition. We do not deal in stock images or modern reprints, and all scans shown are of the actual item being sold. If you have any questions about a particular piece, please ask before the auction ends.
