Truman Baker Searcy AR post card

This post card was on ebay and I really wanted it but my minimum bid wasn't enough.  Someone else bought it and I hope they were from Searcy because Searcy AR really needs the card.  Here's what the listing said about Mr. Baker.

 

"You are bidding on a unused real photo postcard of Future Auto Dealer and Politician Truman Baker Posing With An Automobile Along With a Rose Bud, Arkansas Pennant. Truman Baker would later own an auto dealership in Searcy and serve on the Arkansas Highway Commission. He was responsible for designing and developing the many roads in and around White County. He is very young in this photo. He looks around 21 years old. The postcard has an AZO stamp date indicating it was published from 1904 to 1918. The photo has very good clarity and contrast. The postcard is in excellent condition with no bends or creases. Good luck! "

 

My luck was not good.  Someone else bought it!

I saw the party who won has bought 3778 items.

I think you know if you really want something, you need to set a maximum bid high.  I'll send you an enhanced version of the pic.

Don, I didn't want it bad enough to bid very high.  The buyer must be a card collector instead of a good ole Searcy person.

Don, thanks.  I do wish we had the story behind this picture.  I guess he was looking into the future.......and his success to come.

Good idea. Probably through rose tinted glasses.
