     On April 15, 1947, Jackie Robinson changed the game of baseball forever. Robinson broke baseball's color barrier when he started at 1st base for the Brooklyn Dodgers after coming up through the Negro Leagues as a shortstop and shifting to second base during his one season in the minor leagues. This was Robinson's only season playing first base as he moved to second base the following season.

     Playing through racial hate and death threats, Robinson stayed calm and let his play do the talking. Robinson would go on to win the batting title and National League Most Valuable Player Award just two years later. By the time his career was over, Robinson was a six-time all-star, a World Series champion, and won over the hearts of millions of fans across the country. Jackie was the first African American inducted into Cooperstown in 1962 and his number 42 was retired by Major League Baseball in 1997 on the 50th Anniversary of his groundbreaking debut.

     This 28-inch red felt pennant features Jackie Robinson in a batting pose, with his name and position ("1st Baseman") inscribed in gold text below him. The team name adorns the main body of the pennant, which has a white band at the thick end. Four red felt tassels are attached to the thick end. This pennant is a beautiful and poignant reminder of the Brooklyn Dodgers, the first team that earned the nickname “America’s team.” This pennant is in tremendous condition and has aged beautifully.
