(LOT 536)
1949 Bowman #50 Jackie Robinson Rookie PSA 4 VG-EX

JACKIE ROOKIE!!! "A Life is not important except for the impact it has on other lives" - Jackie Robinson. No truer words were ever spoken by any iconic global personality than this ultra-inspiring phrase uttered by the immortal Jackie Robinson. Legendary Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson's claim to fame will forever be his "breaking the Major League Baseball color barrier" in 1947; a feat that arguably suffices as the most significant occurrence in baseball history. Robinson won an MVP award, led the Dodgers to six pennants and a 1955 World Championship, stole bases, hit for average/power, fielded his position flawlessly and was as fiery a competitor the game has ever seen. Yet, for all of his stellar accomplishments, his place in baseball history will forever be correlated with being the inaugural African-American to play Major League Baseball. Robinson's imposing portrait pose emanates clear clarity, set against a red background. As nice a PSA 4 as we have ever offered of this Jackie Rookie!
