This diamond-themed correspondence piece holds infinite appeal on several fronts. At first glance, we behold a 3-3/8 x 5-3/8” thick stock postcard with a black-and-white likeness of Hall of Famer Walter Johnson. A closer look, however, narrows the likeness to the 1924 World Series (which resulted in the franchise’s lone title), as Johnson’s solid white apparel is without pinstripes. On the reverse, a handwritten message has content regarding Game 7 of the 1925 Fall Classic. Postmarked "OCT 1925," this rare piece is the lone example we’ve ever seen.
