Larry Doby is one of the most underappreciated sports legends in history. Just months after Jackie Robinson broke the Major League color barrier with the National League Dodgers, Doby was the first black player in the American League when he began playing for the Cleveland Indians in 1947. We guess it's a tribute to Jackie just how much he overshadowed Doby's accomplishments as a civil rights pioneer and ballplayer.

It would be one thing if Doby was a pedestrian player, but he was a superstar! He was a key member of two American League pennant winners in Cleveland and helped the Indians capture a World Series victory in 1948 with 7 hits, a .500 slugging percentage and a .318 average during the six game series. Lary Doby retired with 1,515 hits, 970 RBIs, 253 home runs and 960 runs scored while posting a career .283 batting average. The Veterans Committee elected Lawrence Eugene Doby to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1998.

Presented here is a colorful, crisp 1952 Topps card of Mr. Doby, graded a very strong PSA EX-MT 6.
