Comments: I purchased my first Perez-Steele Bill Foster postcard on eBay in December, 2004 (along with a Rube Foster, Larry MacPhail, Frank Selee, Bill Veeck, Lee MacPhail, Tom Yawkey, and William Hulbert) from seller Ron Copeland (Copeland Online Collectibles). The card was submitted to PSA and graded NM-MT 8 in October, 2005. In April, 2009 I purchased two more raw examples on eBay from seller Chock Full of Cards (gretch2662). I submitted them to PSA and they graded NM 7 and NM-MT+ 8.5 in February, 2010. In July, 2012 this PSA 10 popped up on the bay from seller 4 Sharp Corners as a Buy It Now. I snagged it!
