In 1939 the top pitcher in the Cuban Leagues was Negro Leaguer Barney Morris. A multi-time all star, he went 13-9 on the year and was being billed as the next Satchel Paige! The offered photograph captures him in Cienfuegos uniform and is a deep and penetrating image that ranks among the best of any black ballplayer from the era that we have ever handled. Condition and quality make this a perfect 10/10! Morris played from 1932-1948 in the Negro Leagues and is very rare to find images of.
