1940 Dated photograph of rookie Pee Wee Reese from the Brooklyn Dodgers as he appeared in the Dodgers dugout during Freddie Fitzsimmons' night where the pitcher (pictured at right) was being honored. It looks like Reese was hurt and his toe was bandaged, and for some reason Heavyweight icon Jack Dempsey is the third man in the group. An incredibly early photograph of Reese and taken a full year before he appeared on a baseball card! Issued by Acme and with a large paper caption on the back.
