Description

    1950's Jackie Robinson Signed Baseball from Segregated League. Fascinating cultural artifact finds the heroic Jackie Robinson, the embodiment of racial progress within our National Pastime, autographing the baseball of a league which represented anything but. The Official Southern Association ball which provides a side panel signature from the Dodgers legend must certainly date from before 1961, the year it finally ceased operation still clinging to the antiquated Jim Crow principles that disallowed participation by non-whites. It must be noted that other signatures once joined Jackie's on this ball, but those have been carefully removed to provide the look of a genuine single. Scattered toning is apparent throughout, and should be evident in our catalog photography. Robinson's autograph is an impressive 9+/10. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
