Final prices are in today from Hake's Americana & Collectibles sale No. 201 and the results are very impressive.

Selling for $22,137.50 (including 15% Buyer's Premium) is this rare 3 1/2 inch by 5
3/8 inch postcard depicting 12 players in uniform from the Leland
Giants
.

Background: Frank Leland combined the “Chicago Unions” with the Chicago Union Giants (1901-1904) and in 1905 they were re-named the Leland Giants. Rube Foster joined the Giants in 1907, leading them to a 110-10
record including 48 straight wins. In 1909 the Giants entered the tough
integrated city league. In Foster’s first 11 stars he won 11 games with 4
shut-outs. By 1910 the Giants were the talk of the Midwest but Foster
and Leland parted ways with Foster retaining legal rights to the Lelands
Giants name. Foster chose to re-name the team “American Giants” for the
1911 season while Lelands’ new team was named the Chicago Giants. Rube
Foster is shown on the back row at far right.

Another nice performing lot was this Donruss full gum card display box for "The Green Hornet," which brought $2,066.38.
