1948 Photograph of Jackie Robinson of the Brooklyn Dodgers and Benny Zientara of the Cincinnati Reds as the two lay on the ground unconscious after a violent collision behind first base. Crystal clear and an exceptional piece of photography, this harkens feelings of what Jackie Robinson went through to become the most important pioneer in all of sports. Was this event racially motivated? Who knows, but it is not even a footnote in the career of incidents that had to be endured by Jackie. A fine specimen in great shape issued by the Associated Press.
