SCARCE to RARE - Many different types of baseball postcards were made from the 1940's to 1960.   Some makers are not identified on the card, and some of the postcards do not identify the player by name. Some of these postcards are real photographs while others are printed photos, and most are 3.5" by 5.5" in size. Many of the cards from this era were signed by the player to answer fan mail.

The rarely seen Prest-O-lite Battery postcards are cataloged as 1951, but are actually a couple years older, with a newly discovered Tommy Henrich card added to the 2 others already known (Ted Williams and football player Leon Hart).
