Extremely rare batting pose of the aged Negro Leaguer who was technically a 42 year old Major League rookie Satchel Paige as he trades the pitching mound for a bat and a few hacks during a home game in Cleveland. Images of Paige from his time with the Indians are extremely tough to find and this one might be from his Major League Debut! Photo is crystal clear and bold and despite a crease, this is an extremely presentable work of photography and could be from one of the most important days in baseball history. Issued by Acme and stamped on the back.
