Exceptionally clean and crisp postcard image of the 1910 Winston-Salem Twins of the Carolina Association.  Players from this team were featured in the T209 Contentnea Series 2 and T210 Old Mill Series 5 issues.  The Winston-Salem team featured a number of players who did see major league action, none were much more than "cup of coffee" players.  Despite this, the 12 players pictured on this card appear serious and primed for game action in this outstanding photo.  Graded EX 60 by SGC, the postcard exhibits very little wear, which is exceptional given its age and utter lack of importance to anyone outstide the hobby.  For a T209 or T210 collector, however, this is gold.

In addition to being an outstanding quality postcard in its own right, it is also an example of the exceptional skills and research abilities displayed by the members of the Network 54 Baseball message board.  Back in 2013, a thread was started regarding this very postcard. In it, various members pooled their knowledge and their collections to identify various members of the team, which appear to be (from left to right): Frank King, Curt Templin, Myer Brent, Billy Laval, Henry Cote, Edward Painter, James McKevitt, Thomas Fogarty, unknown, unknown, Josh Swindell and John Tiedemann.  The thread can be found here: http://net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=178923

We are tremendous supporters of the type of research that can give unidentified players their names back.  In this case, it was the rare baseball cards of the T209-2 ossie, coupled with the dogged research of some dedicated collectors, who were able to identify the players on this fantastic postcard.
