1949 Large and intimate portrait style photograph of Jackie Robinson, baseball pioneer and Civil Rights icon, as he appeared in a studio setting for formal photographs to be used in the upcoming film "The Jackie Robinson Story." A powerful piece of imagery and offered here for the first time ever, fresh out of a newspaper archive. The photo has some light creasing from editorial use and with exceptional clarity, this is encapsulated by PSA as a Type 1. One of the greatest portrait photographs of Robinson we have ever handled!
