    Description

    1956 Topps Jackie Robinson (White Back) #30 PSA Mint 9--None Superior! A decade earlier, this brave young veteran of the Negro Leagues took his first dangerous step across the Major Leagues' color line, blazing a trail through a dangerous landscape of death threats and racial slurs armed only with quiet stoicism and athletic brilliance. We find him here at the tail end of that most important career in American sports history, the color of his skin long since supplanted as the lead story and replaced by championship glory and eventual Hall of Fame immortality.

    That big smile on his face reminds us that the card found Robinson defending the only World Championship ever celebrated by the Bums of Brooklyn, and he'd play his very last Big League game facing the New York Yankees in the 1956 World Series, the same way he ended his rookie campaign. While the sports world has changed in myriad ways since Robinson's essential service, the offered trading card hasn't aged a day, This Mint specimen finds itself in the top half of one percent of all PSA submissions with none ever grading higher.

    Search all you want and you'll fail to find cause for complaint here, as the bold hues of the image are perfectly registered and balanced between even borders and sharp corners. No gum or wax stains appear. A fitting farewell to a true icon of our national pastime.
