    1946 Jackie Robinson Minor League Debut Full Ticket, PSA Authentic. While April 15, 1947, the day that Jackie Robinson first wore a Brooklyn Dodgers uniform in a regular season game, is considered the end of the offensive and painfully ironic "Gentlemen's Agreement" of professional baseball, in point of fact it had been a year earlier that a Major League affiliate first fielded a black ballplayer. Again, that player was Jackie Robinson, who wore the uniform of the Dodgers' Montreal Royals farm club at an Opening Day visit to the Jersey City Giants. Several tickets have surfaced from the 1947 Opening Day at Ebbets, but this is believed to be the few relics from his minor league debut.

    Heritage sold a similar ticket in its May 2015 sale for $3,346. This is a far superior example. A few minor creases are the only qualifiers on the otherwise stellar ducat. All four corners exhibit only the slightest hint of wear. No staple holes or paper loss is present on the fine ticket. Included is an invitation to the ground-breaking game from New Jersey mayor Frank Hague to a returning war vet. Encapsulated by PSA, Authentic.
