Comments: From their induction in 2006 until 2012 I didn't know any baseball cards existed of the following negro leaguers - Effa Manley, Alex Pompez, Louis Santop , J.L. Wilkinson, or Sol White. Then in May, a PSA 10 1964-Date postcard of Alex Pompez showed up on eBay and I snatched it. I was aware of the issue, seen it many times, but didn't know it was updated with the inductees because nobody had listed them before on eBay. Or, for some reasons my searches didn't reveal them. True the player's portrait is in the plaque, and would be preferred on it's own, but its still better than no card at all. I've searched for an example of Manley since then and this one finally popped up. I purchased this PSA 10 example in April, 2013 (along with a 1986 Fritsch Buck O'Neil in PSA 10) with an eBay auction win from seller and hobby friend Scott Grebenstein.
