Large 1946-47 photograph of the Havana Lions team in uniform and posing on the field. Each player is identified on the back with a period inscription that also lists their nicknames (which is a cool touch). The photo is loaded with Negro Leaguers and includes stars like Henry Kimbro, Hank Thompson, Lennox Pearson, Pedro Formental, Cocaina Garcia and others. One of the better Cuban League teams from the era we have seen and a first for this grouping!
