Bobby Robinson & Lester Lockett Autographed Poster
From the personal collection of Prentice Mills, Negro League researcher and author of Black Ball News, this is a 1990 reprint of a Negro League game poster featuring two legendary Negro League teams, Baltimore Elite Giants and Evansville Colored Braves. The poster is autographed by Lester Lockett who manned the outfield for the Elite Giants in the late 1940s and Bobby Robinson, longtime star infielder for Indianapolis ABCs, Birmingham Black Barons and others.
The signatures were personally obtained by Prentice Mills. A letter of authenticity signed by him will accompany the poster.
The poster measures approximately 14" x 22", was printed by letterpress with wood type and metal foundry type on vintage equipment in 1990 on heavy placard board as was used for advertising showcards during the 1930s-1950s.
Only one poster is available.
