Vintage 1950's (c. 1952) portrait style photograph of Jackie Robinson in uniform with the Brooklyn Dodgers and posing at the ballpark for photographer Barney Stein. This was sent by the Dodgers as a "signed" photograph requested by a fan during Robinson's career, but the signature on theft front (which has been professionally cleaned off) was signed by the team batboy. While in some ways the fact that it was secretarially signed at one time could be viewed as a distraction, it also dates the photograph concretely to Robinson's active career. The photo grades a perfect 10/10 with the faint remnant of the secretarial signature only visible when tilted to the light. We sold another Robinson image from this collection last year and that was given a Type 1 from PSA with this image guaranteed to get the same result if submitted for certification. This is the only example of this photograph we have ever seen and it presents beautifully!
