Summary Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher Don Newcombe, apparently looking towards home plate before or after throw and wearing uniform of minor league Nashua Dodgers. Caption on verso: "Don Newcombe: Eagles, Dodger scouts reported him ripe for the big time. On the basis of his fine conditioning in South America and Panama, he got off to a breezy start with Nashua. Showing speed, a fine assortment of curves and a change of pace, he equalled his mark of .778 made the previous season with 14 victories and four setbacks."
