Did you see the scoreboard explode?

I don’t remember that happening if it did. Not sure that was a thing back then. The only real reason I remember the home run was because my father had some kind of bet going on who would hit the first home run of the season.
Are we having fun yet?

I like this card, I wish I had more sports postcards in that collection I found.

Can you tell if it's a photo, or a drawing?  If it's a photo, I wonder who the players are.  Can you tell what team they are playing?

On the top left corner it says #281.  I wonder what the other postcards in the set are.

I get the impression that it was originally a real black and white photo that was 'colorized' through a litho (adding color through dots) process.  I couldn't pull any info on the card, just a few other cards like it.  I tried to locate a possible b/w photo that the postcard was based on but I couldn't locate one.

Dear Aunt Eleanor - Jim
& I may go here to the
Easter Sun rise Services.  It
is not far from where Jim
lives.  He is away this
week in Houston Texas on a
museum program.  The Los Angeles
Museum sent him, expenses paid.
I am with Olga until next Tuesday.
Will be back with Jim awhile then.
                         With love, Marguerite

  Hi
  We left Sun. morning &
took our time coming up.  Got
here at 2:30.  It is real nice today
(Mon)  Hope it stays like this.
The men are working on the
flu & Evelyn & I are sitting on the
porch.  I'm embroidering.  This is
their motel & eating stand.  They
live across the road.
                              Love
