    Description

    1942 Roy Campanella News Photograph. This is an attractive first-generation 7x9" photo showing Hall of Famer Roy Campanella and teammate Sammy Hughes as members of the Negro League Baltimore Elite Giants. The EX-MT black-and-white photograph shows newspaper dimension cropping marks on the front and the Wide World Photos stamping on the reverse. Also on the back is the Wide World Photos cutline that states: "Sammy Hughes (left) and Roy Campanella (right), husky players for the Baltimore Giants, professional team of negroes, will try out for the Pittsburgh Pirates." The cutline is dated 7/27/42, making it a nice historical artifact coming five years before baseball's infamous Color Line was broken by Jackie Robinson in 1947.
