1908 Gold Background Women Sports Postcards Set Overview

1908 Gold Background Women Sports Postcard FootballThese postcards featured female subjects and sports. Color pictures of women were displayed on the front along with a piece of sporting equipment.

The cards are distinguishable by their thick white borders and, more noticeably, a gold foil background. Backs of the cards present a simple divided postcard. Unfortunately, no artist or lithographer name is present and the postcards do not have a title or identifying number as some sets do. I have simply called this the Gold Background Women Sports set but no official name is known.

To date, I have seen postcards featuring football and tennis. The football woman is wearing a red uniform/sweater with the letter ‘C’ on it, possibly linking her to Cornell. The Cornell name is not present, however.

While I have personally identified only those two postcards in this series, more may exist.
