    1923-24 Nacionales Cigarros Alejandro Oms #51 SGC 70 EX+ 5.5 - Pop One, None Higher! Alejandro Oms was a long time star of the Cuban and Negro Leagues who excelled at fielding, batting and on the base paths. His playing career in Cuba lasted for 14 seasons between 1917 and 1935 mostly for the Cuban Stars East. His most productive years were from 1923 to 1930 where we won three batting titles and won the Cuban Most Valuable Player Award in 1928. He is thought to be one of the greatest Cuban players of the pre-1950 era where only Cristobal Torriente is ranked as a superior. He would play winter ball in Venezuela into the 1940's but died in 1946 when he was just 51 years old. Depending in the source, Oms batted at least .330 in Cuba and over .350 in the Negro League. He became a member of the Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame in 1944. Graded SGC 70 EX+ 5.5. The finest SGC example from a total pop of fourteen.
