Photograph signed: "Willie Pope" in blue ink. B/w, 8x10. Willie Pope (1918-2010) was a professional baseball pitcher who began his career playing for the Negro League's Pittsburgh Crawfords (1946), but is best known for his time playing with the Homestead Grays (1947-1948). Pope served as a major contributor in the 1948 season for the Grays' winning of the Negro National League Pennant and the Negro Leagues World Series against the Birmingham Black Barons of the Negro American League. He spent the next few years playing in Canadian Provincial Leagues and in Western Minor Leagues, and his younger brother David Pope would go on to be one of the first black baseball players to be drafted into the Major Leagues in the 1950s. Fine condition.
