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)

PRETTY WOMAN TENNIS PLAYER : RED HEAD : GREAT SMILE : P.C. PARIS : RPPC

This vintage postcard features a pretty red headed woman tennis player. She is holding a racquet in one hand and a tennis ball in the other hand. Note her tennis outfit. One would have a hard time guessing that she was wearing a tennis dress, but that was typical tennis fashion during the era that this postcard was published. The message on the postcard is in Spanish and from Pepita to Antonia. The message was written in 1920.  I have made an attempt to translate it. The message appears to state, “everyone wishes you a sea of happiness”. This postcard was published by P.C. Paris and the card is in good condition (see scans).
