Jackie Robinson fans will have a field day with this cool collection of memorabilia, mostly from the 1950s. Included is: a Jackie Robinson Game in its original box (G-VG); 1950s metal bust bank (VG, missing a stopper on the bottom); 1950s plastic bust candy container (VG); framed piece of the box for the Jackie Robinson doll; a set of six Jackie Robinson comics (average VG with some better); 1960s Hall of Fame bust in the box (VG-EX); Jackie Robinson Story program; Wheaties advertising page from a magazine; and 1959 personal check signed by Jackie Robinson (EX-MT, comes with black and white photo). Robinson broke baseball's color barrier with the 1947 Brooklyn Dodgers, enduring insults and death threats throughout his Hall of Fame career. Fifty years after his famous debut, Major League Baseball honored his legacy by retiring his #42 throughout the league. Only players wearing #42 on April 15, 1997 were permitted to wear it beyond that date, and Yankees closer Mariano Rivera - a Hall of Fame candidate himself - is the only man who still wears Jackie's number today.
