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.
