Description

    1947 Brooklyn Dodgers Program Signed by Jackie Robinson. A signed letter from our consignor tells the heartwarming story of reciprocal kindness between his father and a man engaged in the most consequential rookie season in Major League history. "After the game he was waiting for the players to exit the stadium, but as they exited they were mobbed by fans except for Robinson. He was standing alone, and my father approached him, started a conversation and asked him to sign the program. My father said he put his hand on his shoulder and signed the program." That program is presented here, the signature faded to perhaps 3/10 but still quite legible and ideally positioned on a rookie-year relic. Scorecard at center is missing, making precise dating impossible. A heavy vertical center fold line barely nicks the autograph. The consignor's 1957 Dodgers scorecard is here as well, unsigned. Full LOA from PSA/DNA. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.

    I am completely satisfied, more to the point, absolutely ecstatic, about not only the proceeds but the wonderful professional manner every aspect of my little consignment was handled.
