    Description

    1940 UCLA Bruins Team Signed Baseball with Jackie Robinson. The most important figure in post-war baseball would distinguish himself at UCLA as the first athlete to win varsity letters in four sports (baseball, basketball, football and track), while helping to make the UCLA Bruins the most racially integrated team in the NCAA with four players of African-American heritage. Unbelievably, baseball was Robinson's "worst" sport, and he hit just .097 in his only season. Presented is an exceedingly rare team ball from that hapless campaign bearing fourteen signatures on the ONL (Frick) model sphere that would await Robinson as a rookie with the 1947 Brooklyn Dodgers. The "Jack Robinson" signature rates 4/10, and stands among the very earliest autographs from the brave pioneer on horsehide. A rare and thrilling keepsake from the twenty-one year old legend in the making. Pre-certified by PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
