Important 1950 photograph from early in the year that shows Jackie Robinson, Sugar Ray Robinson and Tommy Heinrich as the three men were named "Athletes of the Year" for 1949 by SPORT Magazine and received their awards. An bold image of Robinson as he held his award and must have been reflecting on his journey as he seemed to be emotional at the weight of the moment. The photo is in nice shape overall with some corner creasing and light crazing but a clear and precise image.
