Description

    1914 Cracker Jack Branch Rickey #133 PSA NM-MT 8 - The Reigning Ultimate PSA Example! The role Branch Rickey played in baseball history is simply nothing less than extraordinary. In the midst of the most socially consequential era in our National Pastime's history, Rickey chose from a short list of African-American prospects the brave Jackie Robinson to take the first dangerous step across baseball's color line in April of 1947. Incredibly, with one heroic gesture, the Hall of Fame front office man single-handedly ended decades of racial injustice within our National Pastime.

    While Rickey's days in uniform as both a player and manager can be described as undistinguished, his front office work ranks him among the most important executives in the history of Major League Baseball. Offered is one of the few baseball cards he appears on - his Cracker Jack card #133 from 1915. Graded PSA NM-MT 8, some slight surface wear in the upper left is the only criticism of a card that boasts strong corners and precision centering.
