Exceedingly rare photo of a tragic hero of pre-integration baseball, Valentin Dreke, who from 1918 to 1928 was a star outfielder with the Cuban Stars and the Almendares team in the Cuban League until he died in 1929 at age 30. Dreke, who was elected to the Cuban Baseball Hall of Fame, is seen with 2 other Cuban players, catcher Jose Maria Fernandez, and a man identified on the back only as "M. Culto". Great quality photo. EX-MT save for a small tear in the upper right corner.
