Important 1945 photograph of Jackie Robinson signing his Brooklyn Dodgers contract before heading to Montreal for a year of minor league baseball. Here he is pictured wearing his American Flag tie and posed with Dodgers executive Branch Rickey on the historic day that everything changed. The photo was originally taken in late 1945 and the offered example is deemed to be a Type 2 (1950's) by PSA, but we are splitting hairs here as this could be within the five years we give for a "Vintage 1", but we will classify this as a "Vintage 2" to be on the safe side. Developed we believe around 1950-55.
Designation: Vintage 2
Overall Grade: 9.5/10
