Inked to his first Major League contract on his 42nd birthday, Satchel Paige provided excitement and ability reserved for pitchers half his age. This vintage July 7, 1948 Associated Press wire photo portrays the ageless hurler in the Municipal Stadium dugout sharing a laugh with teammate Bob Feller. Measuring approximately 9-1/2 x 8-1/4”, the black-and-white photo is complete with a caption as it appeared on the original negative. There are editorial crop marks on the obverse and a stamping and notation on the reverse. The photo presents beautifully with incidental creases consistent with newsroom handling. Originally sent by the photographer to The Sporting News, this keepsake is a first generation Type I photo. Comes with an LOA from MEARS and a hologram from The Sporting News.
