PC798 Comic Sports Postcards Overview

prewarcards-fan-ie-be-my-catcher-baseball-postcardprewarcards-roth-and-langley-baseball-romance-postcard-who-winsThe PC798 Comic Sports Postcards designation is a unique one, to be sure. It is one of the designations classified in the American Card Catalog that has expanded greatly since its listing there.

With only a dozen issues listed once that fell under that classification, many more have since been added, as stated in this article.

The PC798 series includes various postcards with a humorous angle. One of the interesting things is that, unlike most other designations, these are not postcards all belonging to one specific issue or manufacturer. Rather, they include a series of different postcards that were previously unclassified that had one thing in mind – humor. That was combined with sports (often, baseball).

These are the 12 sets identified in the American Card Catalog. However, there are many more sets that are unclassified and, on top of that, a gaggle of other individual humorous baseball postcards that would fall under this classification.
