1949 Large photograph of Jackie Robinson, baseball pioneer and Civil Rights icon, as he stood in a studio setting for formal photographs to be used in the upcoming film "The Jackie Robinson Story." A powerful piece of imagery, the is an exceptional photograph of Robinson that pictures him from a low angle to look more powerful, a pose usually reserved for whites only. Offered here for the first time ever, this is a companion piece to a similar shot that we sold of Robinson holding his glove, this one picturing him with the bat is the first we have handled. The condition is pretty nice overall with wear to the corners and handling wear, but the image portion is strong. This will get a Type 1 from PSA!
