Unique Jackie Robinson Signed Career Book Page - Signed Eight Times!
Starting Bid - $400.00, Sold For - $2,350.00
Offered here is one of the most amazing Jackie Robinson signed items we have ever seen. Signed an incredible eight times by Jackie Robinson, this unique piece is a slick photographic page that has been perfectly removed from a book, featuring twelve individual photos (six on each side) of Robinson. The photos capture Robinson's entire career, picturing him during various stages of his life, including images of him on the gridiron at U.C.L.A., signing his first baseball contract, in action with the Dodgers, at home with his family, and receiving his Doctor of Laws degree at Howard University (with Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr., standing behind him). Jackie Robinson has signed the page a total of eight times in blue ink (four times on each side). The sheer number of signatures and the fact that each signature has been flawlessly rendered (each grading a perfect “10”) combine to make this one of the most substantial and visually appealing of all Jackie Robinson signed pieces. In essence, this single page represents eight individual signed photos of Robinson, although the placement of the signatures on each side of the sheet precludes it from being broken apart. While both the book from which this page was taken and the circumstances regarding its signing are unknown, it remains a unique multisigned Jackie Robinson piece that captures with images many of the most important moments of his life and career. The page (5.5 x 8.25 inches) has been perfectly removed from the book and is in Excellent condition. LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200+. SOLD FOR $2,350.00
