A native of Wilmington, DE, not far from Philadelphia, Joseph Meyers appeared in just one major-league game. It was the final day of the Athletics' 1905 season, and Meyers posted 2 earned runs and 5 strikeouts in 5 innings. Thus, he has gone down in history as a member of the prestigious pennant-winning pitching staff that included Rube Waddell (Triple Crown), Eddie Plank and Chief Bender—and thus Meyers appears in the seldom-seen regional postcard set known as 1906 Lincoln Publishing. Measuring 3-3/8 x 5-1/2", this is a bright, clean example overall with minor perimeter wear. Encapsulated as VG/EX+ 55 (4.5) by SGC.
