Cuban professional baseball player (1906-1971) who played in Negro league baseball and Latin American leagues from 1923 to 1936, mostly as a pitcher and second baseman; he was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1977. Vintage matte-finish 4.75 x 3.5 photo of the scoreboard at Havana's Stadium Cerveza Tropical, signed on the reverse in black ink by Martín Dihigo, with another hand adding his position. In fine condition. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from JSA.
