Original 5.5x9.75" glossy photo with trimmed margins but full figure images remain complete and unaffected. The two players stand side by side, Oscar has his arm around Fats. Reverse has penciled date of 1925. Lt. margin and handling wear mostly only visible in reflected light and still retains a glossy appearance. Fine. Both men played for this Eastern Colored League team from 1924-1927. Clarence Reginald "Fats" Jenkins played both baseball and basketball. In his more than 20 years in the Negro Leagues, his baseball teams included the New York Lincoln Giants, New York Black Yankees and Pittsburgh Crawfords. His basketball teams included Cum Posey's Loendi Big Five based in Pittsburgh, and the New York Renaissance, the last of the Colored World Champions in 1925. Oscar was one of the greatest legends of the Negro Leagues. A multi-talented star, he was renowned by those who saw him play as the finest all-around player in Negro League history and was dubbed the "Black Ty Cobb" by sports writers. He was inducted into the National Baseball HOF in 1976. From the Richard Merkin Collection and comes with Hake's COA.
