Default 1907 Wolverine News Postcard Finds

Hi guys, I just wanted to share a few of my finds from the last couple of months. Over the summer I went to a “city wide” garage sale. I came across a seller who had some old fish tobacco cards so I asked if he had any baseball cards. Turns out he used to be an antique dealer in the 80s and still had quite a few cards. We finally meet up In December and to my surprise he had a 1907 Wolverine News Cobb batting. We agreed on a price and I was ecstatic to acquire it. 2 weeks later I see an add for some old Tiger programs. Owner tells me he also had a stack of Wolverine postcards. Unfortunately he sold them already but put me in contact with the buyer. After about a month of negotiating I finally was able to acquire the stack which included another Cobb batting along with several team cards, a Crawford, Jennings, and 12 other commons! I recently got them graded, one Cobb came back a PSA 3 while the other SGC authentic (still not convinced its altered just has a funky cut on top). So in the 5 years I’ve been collecting I’ve never even seen a Wolverine news postcard and in 2 weeks I was lucky enough to buy 2 Cobbs! I figured the other Cobb postcard collectors might appreciate seeing these.

Amazing garage sale finds Joe!
Finding 2 Cobb Wolverines is crazy, such tough cards!

Wish I could find a garage sale like that in my neck of the woods!
