Default Cleveland's Historic League Park Postcard, 1910 Opening

At 9.25" x 35" this is officially my longest postcard (thanks Lelands), the 1910 League Park opening in Cleveland. It is in poor condition, due to size and fragility, but still presentable. I figure it is big enough to deserve it's own thread.

edited to add I am not positive it is the opening game but it says at top "Panorama View New American League Base Ball Park, Cleveland Ohio"...I would imagine this kind of postcard was usually reserved for something special, not an ordinary game.

Reminds me of sitting in old Tiger Stadium and watching a game around the obstructed views. Love it.
