Description

Having endured the rigors of public opposition before and throughout his brave endeavor as the first black player in the Major Leagues, Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson (d.1972) signed this personal check during his retirement years. Dated “1-27-1968,” the voucher was drawn from Robinson’s personal account at New York’s Freedom National Bank. In blue ballpoint, Robinson has signed “Jack R. Robinson” (“10” strength) on the appropriate line. Normal bank cancelation stampings do not affect this bold signature. Full photo LOA from JSA.
