My family boasts several generations of Detroit Tigers fans. Since the farm is only about 90 minutes from Detroit, it really was the “home team,” despite the border. This postcard was sent to my great-great grandfather in 1907. and has made its way to my brother for his birthday! He’s been a big fan all his life. We went to a few ball games as kids, and he and my dad and his kids (and other relatives) continue the tradition.

The person who sent this didn’t have much to say, but I found a few other copies of this same postcard. A similar one here, being auctioned off (wow, maybe I gave my brother a better birthday gift than I thought! This person is selling it for $325). This one sold for $780!
