1965 Photograph of the Columbus Confederate Yankees baseball team in uniform. It is in fact the uniforms that make this photo rare, special and controversial today. The players wore small confederate flags on their sleeves and while it might have seemed innocent at the time, we now view this symbol as a racist vestige of the past. Condition and quality are both outstanding and it bears the stamp of a local photographer on the back.
