Obtained only by correspondence with Arch McDonald (radio voice of the Washington Senators), the offered 1948 Gunther Beer Washington Senators postcard of Walter Masterson and Rick Ferrell is an absolute treasure. The reverse displays a printed message from McDonald, while the post cancelled collectible is dated to April 1948. With exception to the post markings, a portion of which protrudes onto the obverse, the cardboard otherwise grades in (VG) condition with moderate perimeter touches, light creasing on the Masterson portion and an imperfection near Ferrell's mouth. So difficult is this issue that the first three issues of the Sports Collector’s Bible listed the set and contents differently each year and finally, by the fourth printing of the guide, the publishers removed the set all together due to lack of information. An essential acquisition for regional enthusiasts and Hall of Fame type collectors alike.
