    1947 New York Cubans Team Signed Photograph. Exceptional large format (10x13.5") photograph features the 1947 New York Cubans, who won their only Negro League world series that year. Very important crossroads for the Negro Leagues as this was the same year that Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier, paving the way for others and as a result watering down the available talent in the Negro Leagues. Twenty-one of the team's members have checked in here with great fountain ink signatures. Such greats have checked in here as Minnie Minoso, Luis Tiant, Sr., Sylvio Garcia, Claro Duany and more. Displays wonderfully despite a few areas of paper loss and some fold lines. Framed to final dimensions of about 15x18". Tremendous rarity from the era just before the Negro Leagues simply disappeared from our national landscape. JSA Auction LOA.
