Description

    1949-50 Toleteros Hilton Smith SGC 20 Fair 1.5. The hobby is all the better thanks to sponsors like Toleteros who produced baseball cards of many athletes that would be all but forgotten by time. The Winter Leagues of Mexico, Cuba, Puerto Rico, etc showcased and were organized by many stars of the Negro League with the occasional player with Major League experience. Hilton Smith pitched for at least 12 years for the Kansas City Monarchs. An arm like a cannon, Smith is renowned for his lightening fastball and particularly his curveball, both delivered with an uncanny accuracy. This 1949-50 Toleteros card of the 2001 Hall of Fame inductee presents very nicely at the excellent-mint level. A light layer of paste residue but no apparent surface damage has resulted in a SGC 20 Fair 1.5 assessment. One of twenty-three total examples recorded in SGC's census report.
