Original dated 1948 photograph of young teenage star from the Cuban Almendares club James Gilliam in full uniform. FIVE YEARS later he would appear on a baseball card for the Brooklyn Dodgers and he would anchor the team that would win the World Series in 1955. The baseball card sized image here is a fantastic piece of memorabilia that is by far the earliest item related to Gilliam we have ever seen in any form.
