Description1949 Jackie Robinson Original News Photograph Used for 1950 Bowman Card by Barney Stein, PSA/DNA Type 1.
Few images of Jackie Robinson can rival this iconic 8x10" pose. If the photo looks familiar it should. Bowman used this for its 1950 issue. The crystal clear photo has Robinson just finishing a swing and features Ebbets Field as the background. Minor wear present on the lower corners and regular handling wear (crease 1/2" below top white perimeter) appears on the EX photo. The following are on back: "Retired" (written in blue), "54" and Brooklyn National League notice stamp. According to the PSA/DNA encapsulation this was a Barney Stein photo. Stein worked for the Dodgers for some 20 years during the team's remarkable run in Brooklyn. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, Type 1.
Guide Value or Estimate: $3,000 - up.

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
