Lo and behold, the 1st (and hopefully LAST) JACKIE ROBINSON "one of one" rookie patch card.

I don't quite know which market this guy is trying to appeal to.....?
A quick glance at the seller's "other items", and I saw about 15-20 of these hand drawn cards. A majority of them are of current/semi-current pro basketball players.


One thing is for sure, if you get THIS Jackie Robinson, it is for sure a 1/1.

His 'other items' list is oddly entertaining. Besides his 'one of ones' he has a trump chia pet, a five pack of hot sauce and whatever the heck this is.

I didn't mean to derail the Jr thread. Here's something modern but still attractive. From Graig Kreindler's Negro League Centennial Set.

And the only slabbed Jackie Robinson I own.

Some solid PSA 2s imo

This one should be labeled awaiting pitch .... even lower pop, which is nice

robinson,j47.jpg

One of my favorite cards of Jackie

That's a home-made card made from bios in a magazine.

Here is mine. I got this from The Baseball Card Society in 1990 while I was in Thule Greenland, tracking satellites.

This card, along with the rest, are from the Feldstein find whenever that was. (I have all the BBCS docs and the receipt too from when I bought them.).
Not much in the grand scheme of things, but it is cool and it is mine.

Cheers,

Win some; lose some. Jackie, Hodges, and Branca trudge off the field with Thomson's "Shot Heard 'Round the World" still ringing in their ears.

I collect integration-related items, so Jackie Robinson is obviously the player who is front and center. Always looking for more relevant items.

Here are a few items from the collection:
  • 1935 Muir High School signed yearbook (sig on the left side of the top image)
  • 1937 Pasadena Junior College signed yearbook
  • 1946 Montreal Royals team signed baseball (Jackie's only season in the Minors)
  • 1947 Dodgers team signed baseball (rookie season)
  • 1949 Jackie Robinson All-Stars Program (standard program for the series)
  • 1949 Jackie Robinson All-Stars vs Creoles' All-Stars (program for particular game)
  • Negro League signed baseball with Jackie and others (likely from 1953 JR All-Stars Barnstorming Tour)
  • 1950 Jackie Robinson All-Stars Broadside

Neat stuff, ya'll.

This day in Jackie history -- January 20, 1958.

Jackie serves as guest referee for a charity basketball game at the Harlem YMCA featuring current and former baseball players. Pictured are Jackie Robinson and fellow pioneers, Larry Doby and Elston Howard (ground). In the white shirt is a man named Buggy Bell. No idea who he is.

A beauty, Rob.

This week in Jackie Robinson history -- Feb. 4, 1952. Jackie signed on as a television executive of a major network (NBC). Yet another first.

Default Obscure card?

Saw Cavs guard Darius Garland wearing this on the bench during a game the other day. Couldn't figure out what the "10cents" refers to. Was the image lifted from an obscure card maybe?

I recently purchased a postcard of Minnie Minoso that I thought, once received, would also have the lines like yours. I was thinking, as I don't know much about exhibits or postcards, it was just some sort of variation or something.

It still pains me to know there was a member here sometime ago who had one for sale for $30 dollars.
I drug my heels and it was gone about a week or so later.

A couple ended on GM cards within the last month and, IIRC, they went for around $400 and $600.

The one I saw at auction was in a lot of exhibits. I had the money, but was I bidding on another item and I wasn't sure what the the final price would be. The auction was set up to where 50 or so lots all closed at the same time. My desired lot closed for a very reasonable price, but then I had no time to bid on the Jackie. So I missed out.

Hard to wrap my head around the fact that kids once pulled brand new '52 Topps high numbers out of wax packs for a nickel late in the summer of the year I first collected cards.

I forgot I even had this card, and always thought it was an odd one. It seems to depict the cartoonified Robinson making a throw from second base in 1947, when we know he only played first base his rookie year.

In January of 1958, Jackie joined the board of directors of the NAACP. Shortly after, Medgar Evers invited Jackie to Jackson, Mississippi for what the NAACP called "Jackie Robinson Day."

This day in Jackie Robinson history -- February 16, 1958, in a Jackson masonic temple, he delivered a speech "Patience, Pride, and Progress." For more, see the link below.

Cool piece, Joe.

This week in Jackie Robinson history, in early 1950, filming for _The Jackie Robinson Story_ was underway. Most of the baseball scenes were filmed at Gilmore Stadium, home of the PCL's Hollywood Stars.

Less than a week for the MLB and PA to hash things out if they want to preserve Jackie Robinson Day on April 15th, which just so happens to be the 75th anniversary of Jackie's MLB debut. Would be a shame if the strike forced it to be pushed. Scott Boras has been eyeing March 15th as an outside date when things would be worked out. Let's hope he's right and the season can kick off in style to celebrate Jackie's semisesquicentennial.

This one is from the presumed Feldstein find. I purchase the 24 card set from the Baseball Card Society back in 1990. I saved all the related data so there is some provenance to these cards along with Mr. Robinson.

Regardless of what it is or where it came from. It is cool, old, and mine!

Cheers,

B. T.



Dang I posted this twice in this thread. Sorry about that.

Adam, I love those 73s!

Here's a weird "card." 1969 Shindana Afro-American History Mystery card.
1969JRShindana

And this day in Jackie history -- March 31, 1965 Jackie was at Holman Stadium as a commentator with ABC-TV. The game was a "warm-up" for the ABC-TV broadcasting system as the network was to launch a "Monday Night Baseball" series that season. Robinson was teamed with veteran sportscaster Chris Schenkel for the 1965 season. Yet another first.

The Shindana's aren't weird at all. They are from a game. There are two varieties, yellow back and red back (came in perforated sheets).

Here is part of a box cover:



The board game was pretty basic. It came with puzzles and each card had a value in puzzle pieces. Answer correctly and you get some pieces. Here is the Joe Louis puzzle:



Oddly, there wasn't a Jackie Robinson puzzle.

A few years ago a set of cabinet sized cards was discovered. The art on some of the cards differs from the art on the regular cards. Perhaps a prototype or proof set?




I've not seen the Robinson in the large format.

Thanks for the info, Adam.

Happy Jackie Robinson Day. Here Jackie is the welcoming committee for the first black pitcher, Dan Bankhead.

1947JRBankheadDebut

In 1947, after Jackie Robinson had broken Major League Baseball’s color barrier, Dodgers’ General Manager Branch Rickey needed to find more pitching talent for Brooklyn to make a push for the pennant. Eventually, Rickey and his scouts decided on the red-hot right hander from Memphis. In the end, the Dodgers paid $15,000 to sign Bankhead. The Alabama Tribune reported on the signing with a story titled “Red Sox Ace First Hurler in ‘Majors.’” In the story, the Tribune reported:

“Bankhead while under close scrutiny by the eagle-eyed Rickey and his veteran scout, George Sisler, last Friday night at Martin Stadium gave impressive account of himself as he struck out eleven batters to win over the Birmingham Black Barons 7 to 2. He has struck out 113 batters in 109 innings.”

Bankhead soon found himself in New York, as a teammate and roommate of Jackie Robinson, and the first African American pitcher to pitch in the Major Leagues. He made his debut on August 26, 1947 at Ebbets Field against the Pittsburgh Pirates. In his debut, Bankhead struggled. He gave up ten hits and eight runs in three and one third innings. The Dodgers went on to lose 16-3. In fact, Bankhead batted much better than he pitched, hitting a homerun in his first appearance. The Daily News the following day ran the headline, “Pirates Overwhelm Flock, 16-3 Bankhead Routed, Hits HR.” The story also said, “Bankhead entered to the accompaniment of a standing ovation.”
