With the success of "42" at the box office this spring, Jackie Robinson is back on the forefront of Americans' consciousness. Over 60 years earlier, however, the baseball pioneer and civil rights icon starred in his own biopic called "The Jackie Robinson Story." From it comes this framed, half-sheet movie poster that sports a terrific image of Jackie in his Dodgers uniform batting. The copy includes: "You'll HIT with him! You'll RUN with him! You'll SLIDE with him!" and bills Robinson as "The Pride of Brooklyn as himself." There are tears that might go away with linen backing. Good color but the condition is GD due to the rips. The bottom-right indicates the poster is #50 of 330. Measures roughly 29" x 23" framed.
