Postcard measures 3.5" x 5.5" in size and has been hand-signed by Satchel Paige (D. 1982, St. Louis Browns, HOF).

Satchel Paige was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1971, the first player to be inducted based upon his play in the Negro leagues. Paige was a right-handed pitcher and was the oldest rookie to play in MLB at the age of 42. He played with the St. Louis Browns until age 47, and represented them in the All-Star Game in 1952 and 1953. Paige was among the most famous and successful players from the Negro Leagues.

While his outstanding control as a pitcher first got him noticed, it was his infectious, cocky, enthusiastic personality and his love for the game that made him a star. On town tours across America, Paige would have his infielders sit down behind him and then routinely strike out the side. As a member of the Cleveland Indians, Paige became the oldest rookie in Major league Baseball and attracted record crowds wherever he pitched.
