1935 Studio photograph of four members of the famous "Our Gang" comedies dressed in uniform and ready for a baseball game. It is interesting that this was taken 12 years before Jackie Robinson integrated the game and yet it seemed normal that Stymie and Billie Thomas are ready to play. Stamped on the back by Stax Graves, the famous photographer of the Hal Roach comedies, this is from the estate of Scotty Beckett (pictured in the photo) and it is a spectacular piece of photography!
