Description


Sought-after vintage glossy 7.75 x 10 half-length portrait of Robinson posing in his Dodgers uniform, attractively signed in blue ballpoint, “Best wishes, Jackie Robinson.” Reverse is stamp-dated May 21, 1950. In fine condition, with lightly trimmed borders and overall rippling and light creasing; the signature remains exceptionally bold against the light background. A year after being awarded the National League MVP, Robinson became the highest paid Brooklyn Dodger in 1950, earning a salary of $35,000. Quickly earning a reputation as one of baseball’s most exciting and popular players, Robinson garnered even wider appeal when he starred as himself in the acclaimed biographical film, The Jackie Robinson Story. A scarce and handsome portrait of the baseball trailblazer, just three years after he broke the sport’s color barrier. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
