    1919 Eastern AA Baseball Team Photo. From 1919 we offer this significant piece depicting a northeastern minor league team. While the team's exact league affiliation could not be determined, the importance here lies in the presence of the second player from the left in the photo. We can only surmise what event came to pass which allowed the African-American young man shown to play on this all-white team. Perhaps a lack of Negro amateur teams in the area led to his inclusion here. In any event, this important period piece portrays a crossing of the color barrier nearly thirty years before Jackie Robinson's epic battle with social inequality. Photo with frame measures approximately 11x24".
