Sure to hit a home run is this coin featuring Jackie Robinson's uniform #42 − the only uniform number ever retired across all Major League Baseball teams! Littleton artists have colorized a Kennedy half dollar with the team's signature blue and white, and the coin is covered in a unique domed technology.
Born 100 years ago in 1919, the athletically gifted African American broke the color barrier in MLB when he signed with the Dodgers in 1947; at season's end he was named Rookie of the Year. In 1949, he was named the National League's MVP. Robinson helped lead the Dodgers to six NL pennants and the 1955 World Series title and went on to become the first African American inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. April 15 is celebrated annually as Jackie Robinson Day and all players, coaches and umpires don #42 in his honor. This coin makes a great gift for baseball fans!
