    Description

    Late 1940's Jackie Robinson Single Signed Baseball. The heroic Dodger's appearance on a ball dating from Ford Frick's National League presidency assures an early career signature, as the Hall of Fame exec turned over the reins to Warren Giles to become Commissioner of Baseball during the 1951 season. So, while any Jackie single carries tremendous collecting appeal, one deriving from those tumultuous early years is particularly noteworthy. The quality of the "Best Wishes, Jackie Robinson" inscription is likewise cause for celebration. Though the word "Best" demonstrates poor ink flow, the final three words project magnificently in bold 10/10 black fountain pen. The ball itself is lightly and evenly toned, only adding to the tremendous visual power. Any Jackie Robinson artifact transcends the sporting world and should be held in great reverence, as we're certain the winning bidder will agree. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication.
