1920s Rube Foster Type I Photo from His Estate (PSA)

1920s Rube Foster Type I Photo from His Estate (PSA)

This circa 1920 Type I, 3.75x5.375" photo is the definitive Rube Foster image. Comes from the family/estate of Rube Foster, perhaps the best African-American pitcher of the first decade of the 1900s, and known as the "Father of Black Baseball." Also an executive, he founded the Negro National League. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1981. During the 1920s period, Foster was winding up his playing days with the Chicago American Giants while also managing the squad. He was also a player and manager in the Cuban League at San Francisco Park (Cuban League). There is creasing on the photo, a few tiny spots, and a small part of the lower left corner is missing.
