Incredible 1915 real photo postcard of the Cuban Remedios baseball club, also known as the Cuban Feds as they were the Champions of the "Federal League." Included in the lineup are some of the biggest names in early black baseball and a ton of stars from the earliest days of the Negro Leagues. Led by Pelayo Chacon, Hooks Jiminez, Rafael Almeida, Agustin Parpetti and Regino Garcia, the team also includes Manuel Cueto and others. The team played exhibition games against the St. Louis Terriors and were claimed as the Champions of Cuba. A nice article can be read about the squad with more research than we could ever provide:

Despite some wear from handling, this is an incredible survivor and one of the first true baseball cards of Cuban players from the era. The rarity and importance of this card is hard to overstate.
