Original 1948 photograph of the greatest pitcher of his era, Satchel Paige and taken during his first year in the big leagues. Black background with stark white uniform strikes emotions as to the color line in Baseball that he was breaking. Photo is powerful from both an artistic and historic aspect and worthy of a spot in even the most advanced collection! Photo comes pre-certified by PSA as a "Type 1" and comes with a full letter. One of his best images from his important first year in the big leagues we have ever seen.
