(Los Angeles): S and S Enterprises. (1977). First. First edition. 285pp., photographs. Fine in good plus dustwrapper with a stain on the front panel, and a few small tears. e 13, by his picture. An exceptionally uncommon self-published book, an anecdotal history and personal memoir about African-American baseball by a player and manager in the Negro Leagues, who later signed with the Cleveland Indians as a catcher at the age of 38, and thereafter was a major league scout for many years. His son, Quincy Thomas Troupe, Jr. (his father had added a second "p" during his career in the Mexican League), is a noted poet, editor, and professor at UCSD. Fascinating but very poorly manufactured. Copies are very uncommon. . (Inventory #: 411847)
