Dennis Brearley was a Pulitzer Prize winning photo journalist once employed by a Boston area newspaper and as the team photographer for the Boston Red Sox. So, he had access to many of the greats in Baseball.
Below are a couple of original vintage negatives of Jackie Robinson.
The next two items are also from the collection of Dennis Brearley and date to the 1900's to 1910's, but were not actually taken by him. Nevertheless, they are rare turn of the century negatives of a team that were rarely photographed. These photos are believed to be of the vaunted Cuban Giants.
The below 2 photos are thought to be of Hall of Famer Jose Mendez.
Here are a couple more action photos of the Cuban Giants. The name of the players is not known.
