A great collection of memorabilia of Baseball player Dave Roberts.
After facing hurdles in the 1950’s and 1960’s in American leagues due
to management’s practice of sidelining black players, he went to
Japan to play with the Sankei Atoms in 1967. His playing career took
off and he was playing in his first all star game in 1968. The
collection includes a commemorative plaque and trophy from the 1968
all-star game as well as a trophy. Also included is an original
Atoms uniform of #5 Roberts in very good condition with minimal
yellowing of the fabric and a 1969 commemorative plaque.
