1954 Cincinnati Redlegs - Nino Escalera
Nino Escalera played for the Cincinnati Redlegs in 1954. On 4/17/54 he became the first Black to play for them in a game against the Milwaukee Braves. Chuck Harmon followed him pinch-hitting in the same game.
I had been using a 1977, "One Year Winners (Fritsch)"card to symbolize a "Rookie" card for him. I found out that the Redlegs had team postcards printed in 1954.
I've been looking for this postcard forever. My newly acquired Nino Escalera "Rookie" Autographed Postcard.

I replaced this....
