Fifty years ago, American Baseball's Major League was restricted by segregation. The field of competition was closed to African Americans. Then in April 1947, Jackie Robinson withstood the taunts and insults, and opened America's pastime to men of every race and color. The obverse depicts Robinson stealing home plate. The reverse features the Jackie Robinson Foundation's 50th anniversary logo of Robinson's breaking the color barrier in Major League Baseball, surrounded by inscriptions highlighting two of Robinson's other achievements: rookie of the year 1947, and hall of fame 1962. An identical 50th anniversary commemorative patch was also worn by all players during the 1997 season. Order yours today!
