Collection: Vintage Baseball Leather Postcards

As I've written about a few times, I have a bunch of vintage Baseball related postcards in my collection.  Over the past couple of weeks I showed some of the couples/women comic postcards (and I have a bunch more of those that I'll share later on), but now I want to transition to something a little more unique.  Here are several postcards that are made of leather. 

These date from 1900 to 1910 and are made of real rawhide.  A couple of these have actually been mailed- evidenced by stamps and postmarks on the reverse.  When I first came across these kind of postcards I was amazed.  I had no idea you could send leather correspondence in the mail.
