    Description

    Jackie Robinson Signed Cut Signature Display. On Jackie Robinson's tombstone in Brooklyn's Cypress Hills Cemetery, just five miles from where Ebbets Field once stood, these words are engraved: "A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives." By that metric, no athlete in American sporting history is more important than the man who took the dangerous first step across baseball's shameful color line. Though Ruth and Cobb may stand taller in the sport's pantheon, from a purely sociological standpoint Robinson has no challenger in regards to the cause of racial equality. For most baseball players, they are judged on batting averages, hits and stolen bases. While Robinson ranks high in all those categories, only the fool thinks his accomplishments end there.

    Framed and matted at 16x20", the piece features a solid blue ballpoint signature on a 4x6" album page. Some damage and chipping to various parts of the frame.Full LOA from James Spence Authentication. Pre-Certified by PSA/DNA.
