    Description

    1948-49 Leaf Jackie Robinson #79 PSA EX 5. As the first modern African-American major league player, Hall of Famer Robinson was under tremendous pressure, yet in his first major league season, the second baseman hit .296, led the National League in stolen bases, with 29, and was named the National League Rookie of the Year as he helped the Brooklyn Dodgers to the pennant. Despite many biased provocations by some fans and opponents, Robinson's conduct, under the glare of a nation, was exemplary. In his third big league season, he reached his peak, hitting .342 to lead the league, with 122 runs, 124 RBI, and a league high 37 stolen bases and another Dodger pennant. Robinson was a fierce competitor whose play, particularly baserunning, was electrifying. Robinson's impact on American society is eternal, and offered is a chance to possess the rookie card of an American icon, a card whose value can only rise through time. Graded PSA EX 5.
