Among the greatest nickname in all of sports history belongs to Manuel "Cocaina" Garcia. Whether he got his nickname because of his curve balls effect on hitters, or whether it was because the ball acted like it was on drugs, the result is the same, it's awesome! The offered ballpark portrait photograph looks great and is one of his best ever taken and it has a baseball card like feel to it! Dated on the back from 1945 and in pretty nice shape with some light creasing on the upper left corner area.
