Spectacular 8" x 10" photo picturing a group of Cuban female ballplayers, posed in front of a grandstand in a variety of uniforms.  The newspaper clip on the reverse implies that the women played a softball game as part of some exhibition to honor an old-time player.  The photo appears in excellent condition, with Fotos Habana stamp on the reverse, along with a few markings and the aforementioned newspaper clip.

NOTE: An astute collector has identified this team for us as the University of Havana, based on the logo on the jerseys.  The "RFM" stamp on the reverse refers to Ramon Fernandez Miranda, a photo service in Cuba.
