    Eddie Stanky "4-15-47" Single Signed Jackie Robinson Commemorative Baseball. The offered baseball ONL (Coleman Robinson Commemorative ball) is signed on the sweet spot by Stanky with the date 4-15-47 commemorating the date Jackie broke the barrier. Stanky contributed to the breaking of the color barrier in 1947. When Jackie Robinson joined the Dodgers, he was treated harshly and discriminated against. Stanky stayed silent at first, but finally yelled back at the Phillies' racist insults during a game. Not long afterward, the other Dodgers began to stand up for Robinson as well. The incident is portrayed in the film 42 . Stanky is played by Jesse Luken. Stanky was famous for his ability to draw walks; he drew 100 or more walks in each of six different seasons, 140 or more in two of them. In 1946, he hit just .273 but his 137 walks allowed him to lead the league in OBP with .436, edging out Stan Musial. Mild toning to the baseball. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
