    Description

    Circa 1960 Jackie Robinson Single Signed Baseball. Like Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson's importance and influence extend beyond the baseball diamond and into the fabric of American culture. And like the Babe, Jackie is still with us today; a constant reminder of all that is noble and good in sports.

    Robinson the pioneer often overshadows the awesome athleticism and talent he possessed, excelling in phenomenal fashion on every diamond, gridiron, hardwood, and track he ever set foot on. And despite debuting in the Major Leagues at the advanced age of twenty-eight, Robinson was still great enough to become the best player in the baseball and the leader of the best team baseball.

    Today, the foundation of every serious single signed baseball collection requires exemplars from Babe Ruth and Jackie Robinson. Here we present a wonderful specimen, inscribed and signed "Best Wishes, Jackie Robinson" in green ink on a side panel of a "Spalding Official Little League" baseball. The ball's wear suggests it may have been game used. The inscription and autograph are still prominent and earn an overall grade of 8/10. Full LOA from PSA/DNA.
