The fire that drove Jackie Robinson also got him in trouble from time to time. Bottling up his intense emotions made him able to deal with being the first man to break the color barrier in baseball, but he sometimes 9after 1947) lost his cool and was prone to fighting with umpires and opponents. Even here in a post-season trip to Cuba he loses his cool and comes flying in to take his beef up with the umpire. Dated on the back and in great shape, this is the first time this image has been seen (as far as we can tell) and it is an important piece of the Jackie Robinson story. Stamped on the back as well by the newspaper and with a paper caption as well, this is being offered here for the first time ever!
