Cuban magazine highlighted black players in the major leagues

Cover of a Cuban paper-bound book entitled El Negro en el Beisbol Norteamericano, "Blacks in North American Baseball."

The book, one of a series of four from 1953-56 that was auctioned by Leland's in June 2005, included articles and photos highlighting great former Negro leagues players in the majors.

On this 1956 cover, Cuban star Minnie Miñoso is shown sliding into home plate.
