Hello guys,

I picked this up yesterday and am trying to find some more info on it. Does anyone know if this is a catalogued postcard with associated with a PC and number identity? This is also the first i've seen this myself, maybe someone has has one or may know something on scarcity? Also, if if isn't a postcard with a designation, would SGC be able to put a numerical grade on it, or possibly just put it in an authentic slab? Any help is appreicated guys.

It's a scarce and desirable postcard. I've seen one or two. There was one in a MastroNet auction a good number of years ago, and I don't remember what it sold for. I don't know that its officially cataloged, but it is a hobby known issue.

I've had an example on my site picture for several years.

I would guess you could get PSA or SGC to grade/entomb it, as they grade uncatalogued and catalogued postcards. They would just have to be confident it's a legitimate/vintage issue. If you included a copy of the relevant MastroNet auction page with your submission, that would be proof of legitimacy enough. I know it's pictured/described in an old catalog, I'm just not sure which one.

These were carried in the Standard Catalog up until the 2004 or 2005 edition (they were dropped from the 2006+ books, along with most other team PCs). The Highlands and A's were included in the "set."

It is a scarce postcard. I have seen it probably less than 5 times. One in nice condition sold in the August 2004 Hunt auction for $350 plus premium and a lesser condition one sold in the August 2002 Hunt Auction for $250 plus premium.

I found a little more on these and the other one, the A's. I think i'd buy any of these available at $250-350.

Here are two bigger scans of both Sporty Postal Card Co. postcards (NY 1911 and PHI 1910).

Note, a version exists of the Philadelphia card w/o the Sporty credit line, issued on a different card stock. I'm unsure if a similar version exists of the NY card, as well.
