Satchel Paige Autograph

With a professional baseball career lasting from the jazz age to the space age, Pitcher Leory Robert Satchel Paige (1906-1982) established himself not only as one of the most dominant American athletes of all time, but also one of the most remarkable.
Paige thus began his lengthy and nomadic professional baseball career. Records for the various Negro Leage Organizations are scare scarce and incomplete, but we know that between 1926 and 1947 Paige played for the Lookouts, the Birmingham Black Barons, the Baltimore Black Sox, The Cleveland Cubs, the Pittsburgh Crawfords, the Kansas City Monarchs, the New York Black Yankees, the Memphis Red Sox, and the Philadelphia Stars. He also moonlighted in other exhibition games, winter leagues and for a variety of barnstorming teams.
