Gorgeous Jackie Robinson Signed Autograph Display, Brooklyn Dodgers. PSA
Jackie Robinson Autograph Display!
No true baseball collection is complete without an exceptional Jackie Robinson autograph. He is baseball's most important hero off the field, and we sometimes overlook his talent on the diamond as a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers. In 1947 after breaking the color barrier, he received MLB's Inaugural Rookie of the Year Award, and just two seasons later he was crowned National League MVP. Of course, he went on to lead Brooklyn to a World Series Title over the Yankees in 1955, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1962.
We've paired the gorgeous blue-ink autograph with one of the most important photos in Major League history. This iconic "KEEP OUT" image was taken on April 10, 1947, the day Branch Rickey announced that the Dodgers had purchased Jackie's contract from their minor league affiliate, the Montreal Royals. The photographer's timing could not have been better, as he perfectly captured the exact moment when Jackie broke the color barrier and entered the door of Major League Baseball. Notice the uniform he is wearing, the Montreal Royals... upon entering the clubhouse, he exchanged that Minor League jersey for his iconic Brooklyn Dodgers #42. This incredibly symbolic and historic photo reflects the state of baseball, and of the nation, at the time. Certainly times were changing and Jackie Robinson was the symbol of that change.
