Among the earliest baseball signatures extant of baseball’s historic icon Jackie Robinson is this 2 X 1” signature cut upon which he signs with his printed name “Jackie Robinson,” and his printed inscription in his hand writing from, “c/o Montreal Royals, Montreal, Canada,” in steel-tip fountain pen. In his first season playing with the Royals, Robinson led the International League in hitting and led the Royals to winning the 1946 League Championship. The following season, Robinson made history becoming the first African American to play baseball in the major leagues when he signed a contract to play with the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. Robinson garnered "Rookie of the Year" honors that year and helped the Dodgers win six National League Pennants and a World Championship during his illustrious career. This is one of the earliest Jackie Robinson signed baseball artifacts extant, bearing his printed penmanship rarely seen and valued substantially more being penned by him from the Brooklyn Dodgers farm team, the Montreal Royals before making history in breaking Major League baseball’s color barrier when he started at first base playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947. Excellent condition. Very good condition. Comes with a James Spence Authentication Letter of Authenticity and a Gotta Have Rock & Roll™ Certificate of Authenticity.
