PC785 Souvenir Postcard Shop of Cleveland Postcards Overview
The PC785 Souvenir Postcard Shop of Cleveland postcards set includes various baseball players on the Cleveland Naps. Black and white photos are on the fronts and the backs include the area for the sender to write the recipient address.
The backs were a bit unique in that they explicitly stated that the area was reserved only for the mailing address. That left senders only a small space on the front to include a message (that area is not in the picture shown, however).
Also on the fronts right above that message area was the printed text “Souvenir Post Card Shop of Cleveland.”
The Cleveland Public Library has an interesting image of the shop itself printed on, what else? A postcard.
A total of 19 postcards are in the set (18 individual players and one team photo).
