1911 Fidler American Girl Series Postcards Overview
These postcards are the work of artist Alice Luella Fidler. Fidler created several postcard series featuring women in primarily non-sports capacities. Her ‘American Girl’ Series was by far the largest and is the one of most concern to sports card collectors.
While that series was also a mostly non-sports set, it includes two sports issues. The most popular one is a picture of a girl with a basketball. It is the only one in the set that features a major sports issue and, aside from a tennis girl in the American Girl set, the only sports postcard in the set. The basketball card is No. 12 in the set (printed on the front) while the tennis card is No. 73 (printed on the back).
The postcards feature color images and are printed against a white/cream-colored background. The cards were copyrighted by Edward Gross in New York.
