He made sports and civil rights history by breaking major league baseball's "color barrier" in 1947...

Offered here is Jackie Robinson's rookie card, made by the Leaf Bubble Gum Company, graded "8" [near mint - mint] by PSA [Professional Sports Authenticators], the experts that authenticate and grade valuable sportscards. Only five "9"s exist and these are valued in the fifty thousand dollar range. It is hard to imagine how these little pieces of cardboard, which were bought, handled, collected and traded by kids have survived the decades in such fine condition. This beautiful card has vivid colors, excellent focus, snow-white borders, and four sharp corners. The back of the card reads..."First Negro player in modern organized baseball..."

It is interesting to note that this particular series of baseball cards, the 1948 Leaf set, has been considered by connoisseurs a pop "art form" unto itself; an entire set of 1948 Leafs was on display at New York's Museum of Modern Art in the mid-nineties.
