    Description

    1952 Topps Jackie Robinson #312 PSA NM-MT 8. Jackie Robinson forever changed the character of our National Pastime for the better. Even in the (relative to the vast majority of the United States) racially diverse borough of Brooklyn, Jackie Robinson would be for thousands the first black man that they considered "one of us." They cheered for him. They loved him. Some of the boys in the stands at Ebbets would march as men in Selma because their hearts and minds had been opened during warm summer afternoons in Flatbush. In short, Jackie Robinson was baseball's greatest gift to the soul of our nation, and arguably the most significant figure in the history of American sports.

    Presented is a fitting tribute to his enduring contribution, the first card of Jackie Robinson to bear the Topps brand. Oddly, Bowman did not include him in their 1951 or 1952 editions. This particular card also presents a dignified strength worthy of the Dodger great. Graded PSA NM-MT 8, from over 875 submissions, this is one of forty-three graded at the NM-MT plateau with a dozen grading higher. This card needs no lengthy description. Colors are vivid and rich. Surfaces are blemish free. Gloss is fresh which greatly enhances the high quality inks. Corners all come to ninety degree angels. A eye-catching card worthy of the finest 1950's collection.
