Attractive and poignant ink blotter, approximately 6 1/4" x 3 1/4", dating to 1950, with a distinct message of anti-racism.  The blotter features Hall of Famers Joe DiMaggio, Bob Feller and Jackie Robinson, along with Sid Gordon and Mel Allen, and contains the messages "Keep pitching - Keep swinging - AGAINST racial and religious prejudice" as well as "...and remember fans...in America HITS are made by men of EVERY race, religion and color."  VG+ condition with very light corner wear, and some surface abrasions.  An outstanding piece with an outstanding message.
