Extremely rare real photo postcard of Martin DiHigo playing for Mariano of the Cuban Winter League in 1937. The photo is captioned in white lettering "Foto. El Tigre".

Some very light tape staining along right, and a few pinpoint areas of surface paper loss. Traditional pre-printed postcard reverse. The postcard has never been mailed. The reverse is clean but has light glue staining around perimeter from long ago being stored in an album, and later carefully removed. An extremely rare, possibly unique image. In overall Very Good condition. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $805.00
