For all the photo-ops, groundbreaking moments, and monumental contract signings, Jackie Robinson meant more to baseball than perhaps anyone. There are several important photographs out there, but the most famous and iconic action photograph of Robinson ever snapped was from game one of the 1955 World Series when he stole home against the New York Yankees. The offered photograph from the International News and stamped on the back is the only completely vintage example we have seen with the condition and quality of this one being a perfect 10/10! Crystal clear and with exceptional contrast, the image was snapped at the exact moment Jackie came crashing into the pads of Yogi Berra who was blocking the plate, but just a hint too far back. A photo that has been viewed online and in print millions of times, this is an ultra rare original being offered for the first time ever here!
