1946 Photograph of the man who changed the game, before he ever appeared in a major league uniform! Taken from his one and only season in the minor leagues with the Montreal Royals, this image from noted Brooklyn Dodgers photographer Barney Stein captures the aspect of Jackie's game that made him so appealing to the Dodgers, his speed! Taken during his first season in white baseball, this is a crystal clear perfect 10/10 that we have never seen before. Stamped on the back by noted photographer Barney Stein, it is impossible to tell the exact age of the image but we feel based on the paper and gelatin surface that this is without a doubt an example from Jackie's career (1950's) and as such is a special piece of photography.
