What this photo lacks in size it certainly makes up for in subject matter. Hall of Fame hurler, Satchel Paige stands alone in this approx. 2" x 8" press photograph that has been trimmed, presumably by the photo archive from which it originated. Working news photo services often trimmed larger photographs featuring multiple players to better file subject matter alphabetically and that appears to be the case here. Photo remains quite clean overall with a wonderful, candid depiction of Paige during the 1940's. Authenticated as a Type 1 photo by PSA/DNA.
