eBay: Nashua Catcher, Roy Campanella

When I saw this on eBay I knew I had to share it here.  This is a 1946 press photo produced by Fraser Foto Service of Nashua Dodgers catcher Roy Campanella. 

Campanella played one season for the Dodger farm club in Nashua, New Hampshire before going on to play for the Dodgers AAA team in Montreal.  Roy batted .290 with 13 home runs, and had a slugging percentage of .477.  On a side note, other notable future Dodgers on his team in Nashua include Don Newcombe and Walter Alston.
