1932 Doble Aguila #248 of Perucho Velez. The text on the reverse is "Perucho es safe en un come back." At some point someone decided that "Perucho" must be the great Puerto Rican Perucho Cepeda, father of HOFer Orlando Cepeda, but this is incorrect. In fact, I believe PSA even graded an example of this card and labeled it Cepeda. It is actually Perucho Velez. Perucho Cepeda does not have a card in the 1931 or 1932 Doble Aguila sets, although he did play a series in Venezuela several years later in 1935.
