Original 5x6" glossy photo shows Jackie shaking hands with Cuban Sports Director Genaro Suarez Rocabruna in 1947. This information and date are penciled on the reverse. In 1947, the Dodgers had set up their training camp in Havana, Cuba, a long way from the borough of Brooklyn, but Branch Rickey strategically wanted to keep his “great experiment” under wraps as long and as quietly as possible. Sharp clear image from the same year that he broke the color barrier in Major League baseball. Trim to right/left margins and lt. handling wear but clean and glossy. Fine. From the Cesar S. Lopez collection, creator of www.cubanball.com.
