1959 Jackie Robinson Signed Letter with Great Content

1959 Jackie Robinson Signed Letter with Great Content

Civil Rights icon and baseball Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson was just as brilliant a businessman as second baseman. This was evidenced by his many business ventures, such as becoming vice president and director of personnel for Chock Full o' Nuts coffee upon his retirement. Framed and matted, this letter from the man who broke baseball's color barrier bemoans the fact that Brooklyn had its Dodgers ripped away from them after the 1957 season. Two years after the borough had its sporting soul amputated, Robinson writes to a colleague that it wouldn't be right to place just any "mediocre team" in Brooklyn but that "something should be done. I hope soon." In the frame, the letter measures 14"x13" and has a typical mailing fold but is otherwise EX-MT. The signature is in 9/10 blue ink.
