Rose Company Poem Postcards Overview
These postcards featured girls with humorous poems. They included both sports and non-sports subjects and at least one football card is in the set.
The football card features a Harvard college girl with a pennant with a football game playing out in the background. Her poem reads:
“No matter what the game or team,
You’re always ready to cheer and scream;
You’d be better off if you’d forget the college
And try to get some useful knowledge.
The postcards have a decorative frame around the picture and a standard divided backing.
Some pre-war baseball fans will recognize the producer of this series, The Rose Company. They also produced the 1908-09 Rose Company baseball postcards, one of the more famous baseball issues.
