1955 original passport that belonged to Negro Leaguer, Wilmer Fields. It features his signature on his passport photo. Includes stamps from Colombia, where he traveled to to play baseball during the 1955-56 Colombian season. It was issued on October 24th, 1955 and the stamp in Colombia is dated October 17th, 1955, so it's clear he obtained this passport specifically to be able to play ball there.
