    Description

    Circa 1950 Jackie Robinson Single Signed Baseball. When the brave racial pioneer took his first step onto the diamond at Ebbets Field, this was the type of baseball that was in play. Robinson's appearance on an ONL sphere bearing the presidential stamping of Ford Frick assures creation no later than 1951, the earliest years of Major League integration. His side panel signature is prefaced with a kind, "Best wishes," the black fountain pen ink retaining a strength of 7/10. A small abrasion barely nicks the autograph, to little effect, as our catalog imagery should indicate. A rare and exciting early-playing-days model! Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
