Perhaps baseball's greatest crime isn't the banning of Joe Jackson. Instead, it is the fact that, due to racism, the world didn't get to see Satchell Paige in a major league uniform until the hurler was in his 40s. We could fill page after page with Paige stories. Instead we'll simply encourage you to purchase the card of a man who very well might have been the greatest player in baseball history after Babe Ruth.
