    Description

    1949 Bowman Jackie Robinson #50 Signed, PSA/DNA Mint 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.

    So Robinson had every reason to smile big on this beautiful Bowman issued at his Hall of Fame zenith, a card that would offer plenty to tempt the advanced trading card collector even in the absence of the brave pioneer's personal addition to the bold graphics. With bright colors and marvelous registration, the card ably defends its status as one of the hobby's most favored formats. The clean style lends itself perfectly to the nearly flawless signature from Robinson, whose blue ink is assessed at a Mint level by the discriminating experts of PSA/DNA. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Mint 9.
