    Extremely Rare 1934 Concordia Eagles Real Photo Post Card SGC Fair 1.5 - With Martin Dihigo & Josh Gibson. Offered is an extremely rare 1934 real photo post card featuring three key Negro league Hall of Famers. The scene is players from the Tigres Del Licey, Concordia Eagles and Escogido during a baseball tournament in Venezuela for the championship of Latin America. The image was taken "Enero21-1934"or January 21, 1934. This remarkable 3-1/2" x 5-1/2" RPPC presents an excellent quality image with the back showing hand written notes, including an April 2, 1934 date but no stamp or cancellation stamping. This was no simple barn storming tour. This was a championship series with Concordia winning it all. The squad had baseball legends Martin Dihigo who is the first player on the left with a black jacket on and slugger Josh Gibson who is dead center just to the left of the boy squatting in front. Also in the image are HoFer Alejandro Oms (in the white suit), Rap Nixon, Tetelo Vargas and Luis Aparicio Sr. who were on the team but we cannot confirm they are in the image. There is some mild wear so the SGC Fair 1.5 assessment is due to the hand-writing on the reverse. Team photos of the 1934 Concordia team are about as rare as they come. This is a fascinating piece from a key baseball tournament of the era and one that features the "Ruth and Gehrig" of the Negro Leagues.
