Since that set was printed in Sweden they are not as uncommon as one would believe if you are other there. I got mine in Sweden in 2016 from a dealer who had 2 others. The collectors on here call the T-206 set 'The Monster'. The postcard set that includes this Thorpe is a true monster set with over 800 cards. The cheapest you can find any of the cards is about $10.00. The official photographers also created RPPC's that are not part of the set that were sold to competitors. I have two mailed by a U.S. fencer to his mother and brother from the Olympic Games that show him with other fencers and they are not part of the set. I saw a complete set displayed at the Gothenburg Sports Museum. It was displayed in those frames that you could flip like a giant book. Very impressive to look at.

Very excited to acquire this Winthrop Moving Picture postcard of Joe “Iron Man” McGinnity. I have admired these for a long time. Here’s a short YouTube video of the postcard in action:

Does anyone here have the Mathewson or “Three Finger” Brown from this series?

I saw that postcard at auction (online) and thought it would be cool but didn’t know how thick it was! Thanks for sharing the YouTube video!! Now I’ll have to keep my eye out for one! A Matty would be sweet!

Here's a cool postcard! It's a 1911 RPPC of a N.Y. Giants player "catching a high ball in Cuba". This photo was taken during the N.Y. Giants barnstorming tour of Cuba in 1911.

Picked up this aerial RPPC of the two ballparks from which sprang my love of baseball. Frequented Yankee Stadium numerous times in the 'fifties while the Polo Grounds sat dark and shuttered across the river. At the upper left you can see the buildings of Columbia upon whose grounds once sat Hilltop Park. The left and right field grandstands of YS haven't been extended yet so the image is probably pre-1936. An eBay purchase.
