BASEBALL TEAM PORTRAIT : TRIPOLI, IOWA : BATS, BALL, GLOVES : RPPC (1912)

This vintage real photo postcard features a portrait of members of a baseball team. Pictured are ten uniformed players and presumably, their coach clad in a shirt and tie. The coach is holding a glass of wine or champagne. I wonder if he is celebrating a victory. Note the players equipment seen in the first row. You can see gloves, a catcher’s mit,  bats, and even a baseball. This baseball team is from Tripoli, Iowa. The team members look to old to be high school players. Perhaps the team was in a semi pro league. This photo postcard was postmarked in 1912. (SOLD)

FELICITAS MALTEN : GERMAN ACTRESS : FLED NAZIS : IN FILM :HITLER-DEAD OR ALIVE”

This vintage real photo postcard features German film actress and dancer, Fee (Felicitas) Malten (1911-2005). Malten later emigrated to the United States. She was a leading lady in silent as well as sound films of the Weimar era. Malten was forced to go into exile after the Nazi rise to power in 1933. The compelling reason for her exit was her Jewish background. When she came to the United States, she continued to act. Most of her parts in America, were in Germanic minor roles. In the US, she was known as Fay Wall. The IMDb credits her with 29 film appearances. One of these films was “Hitler-Dead or Alive” (1942). Note that the reverse of the postcard has moderate wear and also on the reverse is a tracing of Miss Malten’s face. The front of the postcard has no damage. Overall, this vintage postcard is in good condition (see scans).

TWO MYSTERIOUS DANCERS : UNIQUE CLOSE-UP : INTRIGUING PIERROTS

This vintage  postcard is unusual (uncommon). It features two female dancers, I believe they are performing a type of ballet. The dancer that is holding up the other dancer has very muscular legs. Is she a he? An inscription on the reverse of the card appears to say  “Jennoff”. I was hoping that the name  “Jennoff” would lead me to more information about this  postcard. It failed to do so. The story behind this Italian vintage postcard, intrigues me.  (SOLD)
