Celebrate the Legacy of Jackie Robinson

Jackie Robinson (1919-72) became the first black athlete to play in the major leagues when he debuted with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947.  That year Robinson helped his team win the National League pennant, and was voted Rookie of the Year.  Robinson played for 10 seasons with the Dodgers, winning the Most Valuable Player award in 1949 and leading the team to its only World Series victory in 1955.  With his outstanding physical skills and a burning desire for victory, Robinson was surely one of the game’s most aggressive competitors.

However, Robinson’s legacy goes well beyond his individual achievements.  The career paths of the legendary baseball players on this sheet (all of whom are members of the Baseball Hall of Fame), as well as every other African-American athlete, were paved by Robinson’s courage.  Yet, his influence extends even beyond baseball – for Robinson helped change American culture.

Incredibly collectible, this sheet bears the official logo created for Jackie Robinson’s 50th anniversary, plus that of Major League Baseball, and the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
