Remarkable 1926 St. Louis Stars Negro League real photo postcard picturing (18) members of the squad including three Hall of Famers. The nearly 3-1/2 x 5-3/8” sepia piece is credited to “The Spirit of the Times Photos”. Despite four pin/tack holes along the upper edge including a small piece of paper loss, the images of the talent are crisp and recognizable. A notation reading “Some Team of 1926” is placed along the lower edge. The blank correspondence section is absent of any writing or postmarks. Pictured players from left-to-right include Top Row: Suttles, Wells, Murray, Hensley, Patton, J. Russell, B. Russell, Williams, Dismukes; Bottom Row: Davis, Reese, Bobo, Creasy, Ross Bell, Miller Brown and Redus. Full photo COA from Hake’s Americana & Collectibles certifying this relic originates from the famed Richard Merkin collection.
