True, but you can take notes in the margins of the contract.

In this case, yes.

1932 Bill Dickey. Contract or Jersey? Jersey.

1947 Ted Williams. Contract or Jersey? Jersey.

1955 Roberto Clemente. Contract or Jersey? Jersey.

THESE Robinson contracts or THAT Robinson jersey? To me it's not close.

Default Jackie Jersey or Contract

In almost every case I'd choose the GU jersey, but with Robinson signing and breaking the color barrier, in this case, and changing baseball and bringing a change to civil rights, I'd have to go with the contract. Man, every baseball fan has seen the pictures of Branch Rickey and Jackie Robinson signing the contract and the smiles on their faces. Both very, very cool, but the contract would be my pick.

Had to remind me of that scene from Seinfeld where Steinbrenner wears Gehrig's pants around the office.

I agree a 100%. The contract, and it's significance, far outweighs the Jersey in this case.

I am a card guy but is it at all remarkable to those of you who deal/collect memorabilia that all of this rookie era Roby memorabilia came to auction at the same time? Goldin with the contracts, Lelands with the cap, Heritage with the jersey and Hunt has a rookie era glove. All of these items had to have been consigned at the same time to the various houses based on the auction endings. Though outside this timeline, last year Heritage had the 1947 bat as well that sold in late 2016. Hate to be a skeptic...

Thanks,
Greg
