Satchel Paige, considered one of the greatest pitchers of all time, has signed this 1953 Topps baseball card in blue ballpoint pen. Leroy Robert "Satchel" Paige (July 7, 1906 - June 8, 1982) pitched professionally from 1924-1959 and was the first man elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame by the Committee on Negro Leagues formed in 1971. He didn't pitch in the major leagues until 1948 and he became the American League's leading relief pitcher in 1952 at age 46. That same year Casey Stengel named him to the American League All-Star team, making him the first black pitcher on an AL All-Star team. When the game was cut short, and Paige did not have a chance to play, Stengel promised to put him in the All-Star game in 1953. Stengel made good on his promise, and Paige pitched in that year's game. With a career spanning four decades, Paige came back to pitch his last game in 1965 at the age of 59 (three scoreless innings for the Kansas City Athletics). Very good condition. Comes with a Gotta Have Rock & Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity.
