Jackie Robinson Brooklyn Dodgers Pennant
“The right of every American to first-class citizenship is the most important issue of our time…” – Jackie Robinson. After his introduction into baseball in 1947, Jackie Robinson created a new perspective on America and baseball. His image appeared everywhere, from postage stamps to cereal boxes, to patches on baseball jerseys from any city. His contribution to baseball as an athlete and as a human being is both amazing and invaluable. Anyone can remember the sight of Jackie stealing home in the 1955 World Series (something he did successfully 19 times in his career). From his very first season it was clear that he was a leader and achiever. A Rookie-of-the-year performance in 1947 won the NL pennant for the Dodgers. Green Dodgers (22” in length) bears image of baseball’s most historically significant figure. Image is of Jackie stretching for the out at first base, the position he was introduced at. One tiny piece missing from top edge of pennant, otherwise EX.
