Paperback edition of Jackie Robinson of the Brooklyn Dodgers
by Milton Shapiro (An Archway Paperback, New York, 1967), signed by Jackie Robinson on the interior. Robinson has beautifully inscribed the book in black ink (grading "10") on the interior front cover, "To David with/best wishes/Jackie Robinson." This is the first signed example of this paperback edition we have ever seen. The book (4.25 x 7 inches) displays moderate handling wear, including a small edge tear to the front cover, light creasing to both covers, and a very slight separation along the spine. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall. Auction LOA from James Spence/JSA. Pre certified by Steve Grad and Brian Sobrero/Beckett Authentication. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
