Incredible 1953 photograph of Jackie Robinson, still in his prime with the Brooklyn Dodgers as he teaches the finer points of the game to his son Jackie Robinson Jr. A touching image showing the man who would make it possible for children like his own to live in a country that was just a little better because of his sacrifice and courage. Issued by the Associated Press and stamped on the back. One of the more heartfelt images of Robinson that we have seen.
