1907 Earl Christy Embossed College Series Postcards Overview
This series featured a picture of a football player and a fan or cheerleader. They can be distinguished from many other issues because they are embossed with the picture presenting a 3D image.
Each woman shown is featured in fancy apparel and is pictured with a player from a particular school. Below each pair is a banner with the name of the school and a school cheer is printed in the background. This general motif was a common theme with other postcards – particularly those done by Earl Christy. Christy also produced embossed postcards featuring only the females with pennants.
As indicated on the backs, they are part of the ‘College Series.’ Each postcard in the set is also numbered on the reverse.
Backs include a simple, traditional postcard layout with a divider line to separate the message from the recipient’s address.
