    Description

    Signed 1955 Topps Jackie Robinson #50 PSA/DNA Mint 9! While it's no groundbreaking statement to express that prejudice is most fundamentally rooted in ignorance, it's important that we clarify that term. The enormous strides made in American racial equality in the past seven decades are not due to the white majority becoming more intelligent, but rather more familiar with our fellow citizens of African descent. Human nature instructs us to fear, to condemn, that which we do not understand, and the racial divisions in this nation had, since colonial times, been absolute. We offer this all-too true prelude in order to illustrate just how substantial and essential were the contributions of Jackie Robinson. That he forever changed the character of our National Pastime for the better is self-evident, but overly simplistic. Presented is a fitting tribute to Robinson's enduring contribution. His 1955 Topps baseball card graced with a stunning, close to pristine salutation and signature in Jackie's hand, signed "Best Wishes, Jackie Robinson" in black ball-point pen. The card is a rich and bold example, appearing Excellent-plus with the exception of one light corner crease, but that is totally irrelevant. It's a baseball card for the uncompromising collector.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
