Large 1928 portrait photograph of Silvino "Poppa" Ruiz who was a veteran of both the Negro Leagues and Cuban Winter Leagues and a player who also played a little white baseball in the minor leagues in 1929 as well! A rare portrait photograph from the most famous Cuban baseball photographer of the era (Jose Luis Lopez Gomez) and stamped on the back. This is a fine silver gelatin original and is by far the greatest image of this player ever to have come up for sale!
