    Description

    Signed 1949 Bowman Jackie Robinson #50 PSA Authentic, PSA/DNA Auto 9. Though the brave Robinson battled through the harshest adversity ever faced by a Major League player in winning the 1947 Rookie of the Year Award, his first great season (and arguably his greatest ever) would be posted two years later in 1949. In the spring of that year, the second baseman came under the tutelage of Hall of Famer George Sisler, who taught Jackie to anticipate the fastball when at the plate, and then simply adjust for breaking pitches. "Sisler showed me how to stop lunging," Robinson explained, "how to check my swing until the last fraction of a second." The results were striking. Robinson's batting average jumped forty-six points to a National League-best .342. His ratio of walks to strikeouts more than doubled, and he added thirty-nine RBI's to his 1948 total, which, along with his League-leading thirty-seven stolen bases, earned him the 1949 Most Valuable Player Award.

    Depending on your collecting interests, there is good news and not so good news. The card purest will bemoan the fact the card has been written on. The good (great actually!) is that the brave pioneer's personal signature graces the front streaching an almost full distance from the left to right edges. The card has some white added to the bottom corners and has been encapsulated PSA Authentic while the beautiful blue ball point pen signature has been graded PSA/DNA Certified Auto 9.
