In 1947 Jackie Robinson made history after joining the Dodgers at Ebbets Field. Two years later, he was making it again being the first African American to win the National League MVP title.
Robinson remains a household name nearly fifty years after his death in 1972. He distinguished himself as one of the sport’s greats and is also remembered for his contribution to civil rights. Robinson was the first African-American to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
The print depicts the first day of Robinson's legendary career. Side by side with teammates Spider Jorgenson, Pee Wee Reese, Ed Stanky, Robinson persevered through racism, slander, and targeting to make a stand for what is right and give hope to all who dreamed of equality. This heroic photo was hand framed with 100% natural wood, by local craftsman Chris Oyler of Pelham, Alabama in 2018. The frame is professionally finished and sized as 16.5"x14.5"x1" with museum grade Kraft paper and finished with hooks and wire which are attached and ready for your wall.
