Posted By: <b>Richard</b><p>Mark, currently I have a whopping 0. LOL I just acquired one and was curious to learn more about this set. I have always wanted a card from the set but could never find them. As always with us collectors, when you acquire a card from a new set you want to research and learn more about the set. Scarcity, prices, etc. Thanks much.

Posted By: <b>Jim Clarke</b><p>Very popular set among postcard collectors and even HOF player collectors. I think Jerry Spilman wrote several articles on them within the last 10 years. I think between Jerry, Jim "greenmonster", Steve Murry, and myself, we have around 100 total. Here is link to see mine.

Posted By: <b>Jim Clarke</b><p>I forgot about Larry... I think he has the biggest collection of them period. He was selling off dubs at a hefty price if I remember correctly.. Well worth it too!!! For how rare and cool they are..

Posted By: <b>Richard</b><p>Jim, thanks for sharing the photos from your collection. You have some awesome cards. I see that some of the Rose Company postcards are found postmarked with writing on back. They sure are beautiful looking cards. Great ornate design very similar to the T204 Ramly gold trimming. They must be pretty scace as you don't see them very often. <br />Thanks
