Incorrectly dated in our catalog, this is likely a 1954 photo depicting Roberto Clemente in his Santurce Cangrejeros Puerto Rican league photo, alongside teammates Artie Wilson and Bob Thurman.  Purchased from the estate of Thurman, though documentation of this provenance is unavailable.  The photo itself is in fair condition, with tack holes, several creases and minor stains, and some minor tears, however, the quality of the photo is excellent, the image crisp and clear.  An excellent photo of Clemente with two stars in their own right, who sadly were unable to make much of a mark in the major leagues due to the difficulties still facing black athletes in the late 1940s and early 1950s.
