PC782 Rotograph Postcards Overview

PC782 1905 Rotograph Postcards Chesbro.jpg

The PC782 Rotograph postcards set includes various baseball players from New York. Black and white photos are on the fronts and the backs include the area for the sender to write his/her message and the recipient address. The company was based in New York so the focus on players from that state made sense.

The player images occupy most of the real estate on the front of the postcard and provide some striking imagery. The only text on the fronts is used to identify the player in question as well as his team. Since all players are New York players, the identification is as a member of the New York American or National League team.

Rotographs also printed more than just baseball postcards. Around the same time period, the company produced a set of postcards featuring U.S. Presidents as well. They were also involved in some other sports issues and produced a set of college fan/pennant series centered around football.

You can also see pictures of all of the baseball postcards here.
