1949-50 Acebo cards have several different back variations as well as pose variations within the set. In addition to the cards, there are also 8x10 photographic premiums of each card, which are quite rare. But the rarest of the three Acebo issues are the 4x5 photographic cards. Only 7 or 8 different cards are known, all are the same images that can be found on the smaller cards. The photographs for all Acebos were taken by the famous Cuban photographer Newton Estape. This lot features the regular Acebo card of Negro Leaguer Pedro Pages (blank back variation), as well as the rare 4x5 photographic version.
