Lot 496: 1954 Jackie Robinson Photo
Auction Date:4/15/2007 9:00 PM EST
Amazing image of Jackie Robinson staring into the stands after throwing his baseball bat! Imagine. The guy Branch Rickey hand picked to break baseball’s color barrier, chosen primarily for his temperament, finally loses his cool. But he was nothing if not an extremely intense and involved human being. The photo measures 7 x 8 and is EX+ in condition, clarity and contrast.
