Listing Details

One of my personal favorites of the early 20th century postcard issues, the extremely popular 1907 Grignon Cubs set checks in at 16 pieces. These cards have a wonderful clean design with a vibrant green background, a large image of various literal Cubs on the left side and a player picture on the right side. The backs are standard postcard backs. The offered set is all graded by SGC, everything is a 1.5 except for Moran and Schulte. 14 of the 16 cards have period notes on back, most are postmarked 1907, hence the low technical grades. The fronts, however, look terrific, with note to vibrant colors, crisp edges and excellent eye appeal. This substantial set features many members from the legendary 1908 Cubs World Series Championship team (the first until 2016), with note to HOFer Mordecai Brown and Tinker to Evers to Chance. Complete sets hardly ever come to market, we decided to keep this together to save someone the trouble of bidding on 16 separate lots.
