    1953 Campanella All-Stars Team Signed Photograph with Campanella, Pompez. Incredible signed photo features many of the first African-American ballplayers to appear in the Majors, all former (or still active) Negro League stars during that historic period when baseball began to right over a century of wrongs. Most noteworthy are Campanella himself (3/10) and New York Cubans owner Alex Pompez (4/10), but we also find the first New York Giants of African descent Hank Thompson (3/10) and Monte Irvin (1.5/10), the first Cleveland Indians Larry Doby (3/10) and Harry Simpson (3/10) and Negro League Hall of Famer Leon Day (3/10). Rounding out the cast, between 2/10 and 7/10, are George Scales, George Crowe, Wes Covington, Lenny Pearson, Walter Hardy, Pat Scantlebury, Lefty Gaines, Verdell Mathis, Joe Black and Lonnie Hooker. The photo itself presents well after having been professionally mounted on a cardboard backing. Size is 8x10". Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA.
