The carved wood hand is brown and the baseball is old.  The stadium is 2nd rate, framed with old coke signs, like many stadiums played in by Negro League teams.  This was the "color line" in organized baseball's history from its beginning in 1867 until the late 1940's.  In 1948 Leroy "Satchel" Paige was the oldest rookie ever to play in the majors because of racial segregation during most of his career.  In his original 1953 baseball card pictured here, when he played briefly for the St. Louis Browns, he was approximately 47.  Even when there was talk of inducting him into the Baseball Hall of Fame in the late 1960's, the then commissioner suggested a separate "Negro" wing.  Because of men like Satchel Paige, the young boy (in this original 1950's photo) questioned a "seperate but equal" world, symbolized by the Jim Crow character blocking his way.
