Althea Gibson is one of the most underrated athletes in history, period! She essentially did what Jackie Robinson did for baseball, but also had the added pressures of gender stereotypes to break down as well, and she did it with style, grace, and dominance! The offered action photo is dated from 1956 (early for her images) and it was issued by the International News and stamped on the back with a date as well.
