Do these shine in the dark?


In recognition of Jackie Robinson’s 75th anniversary of breaking the MLB color barrier, Goldin is highlighting a number of Robinson memorabilia pieces in their Jackie Robinson 75th Anniversary auction running through May 2.

The marquee piece is a 1951 Jackie Robinson Game-Used Dodgers home jersey (Mears A8) currently at $3.1 million.

Not all heroes wear capes

This jersey was worn four years after Robinson became the first African-American MLB player and is one of only a few Robinson game-worn jerseys to ever come to auction. The current price is already higher than the sale realized in April 2018 for Robinson’s rookie season home jersey, which sold for $2,600,000.

Other Robinson pieces in the auction are a 1949 game-used bat ($348,000), his Hall of Fame presentation plaque ($110,000), and a handwritten and signed letter discussing racial differences ($30,000).

Robinson’s letter shows a rare glimpse of his personal thoughts
