Between PSA and SGC there are 8 graded examples of this card, this is only the second "No Team Name." These were actually an additional printing so the "No Team Name " cards can be assumed to be later printings than the regular versions, and judging by populations, a smaller run. These had nothing to do with team changes, though possibly Rose Co. was considering making this ongoing and thought to head off the problem of team changes at the pass.

Light to moderate corner wear and the reverse shows significant toning. Possibly from another postcard whose acid marked the back of this one considering how they were found. Still a hugely appealing card for the grade.
