1931 Portrait photograph of Burt Shotton from the Philadelphia Phillies and taken in full uniform. Shotton was a good player, then a decent manager for years but is well known today for being coaxed out of retirement as a favor to branch Rickey to coach Jackie Robinson in the iconic 1947 Dodgers color barrier season. Issued by the International News and stamped on the back with a full paper caption as well.
