Large 1953 composite photograph of over FORTY players from the Puerto Rican baseball series led by mostly players from the Caguas team. Most of the players have their names underneath including a young man named Hank Aaron (misspelled Aroon) to the right of the image. An incredible early rarity that is the only example of this image we have ever seen, this is a team issued image which makes it a baseball card that pre-dates his Topps rookie card by a full season! This is the earliest image of Aaron we have ever seen!
