Brooklyn Dodgers Jersey, Collectibles Hit Auction For Jackie Robinson Day

By Barry Janoff

April 14, 2019: April 15 is Jackie Robinson Day, and this year is all that more special because of the year-long celebration of what would have been Robinson’s 100th birthday (born Jan. 31, 1919).

MLB is honoring The Man league wide, and the Robinson Family and the Jackie Robinson Foundation have been busy with celebrations, activation and events leading to the scheduled opening of the Jackie Robinson Museum in New York this December.

Add to the plaudits a significant collection of Jackie Robinson memorabilia as part of the Goldin Auctions 2019 Spring Auction, from April 15 through May 11.

Included in the 1,200-lot auction are a dozen lots celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of Jackie Robinson, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the Jackie Robinson Foundation.

Headlining the Robinson lots is his Brooklyn Dodgers home jersey from the 1951 season, which ended with Bobby Thomson's "Shot Heard Round the World,” sending the New York Giants to the World Series and the Dodgers back home for the off-season.

According to Goldin, it is “Graded a Mears 8; it is one of the most spectacular Robinson jerseys in existence.”

Last year a historically significant Robinson jersey from the 1947, season sold for $2.6 million, according to Goldin.

“Only a handful of Robinson jerseys have ever been sold at auction, which shows how rare and difficult they are to find,” said Goldin Autions.

Also part of the Jackie Robinson items: A game-used bat from 1953, a 1947 game-used ball signed by Robinson and 11 other members of the Dodgers; a Dodgers pennant from 1947 featuring an image of Robinson; and various Robinson-signed photos and paper items.

The Goldin Auctions 2019 Spring Auction has unique pieces from other players, as well.

Among them are the 1925 Lou Gehrig signed New York Yankees player's contract for his first full season (he was paid $3,750.00), Barry Bonds' final career home run ball (No. 762), Mark McGwire's career home run No. 500 baseball; and 40 lots of rare and unique Alex Rodriguez memorabilia, including the ball, bat, cleats and uniform from career home run No. 500.

The most historic non-sports item is the last autograph ever signed by President John F. Kennedy, on a spiral-bound notebook at Carswell Air Force Base as he boarded Air Force One for Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963.

Among the events on April 15, the Jackie Robinson Museum (75 Varick Street, NY) is hosting a pop-up Exhibit from 7 AM (ET) to 7 PM (ET).

The Los Angeles Dodgers are hosting Jackie’s widow, Rachel, and daughter, Sharon, and son, David.

The team plans to give away a Jackie Robinson replica No. 42 jersey presented by Bank of America to the first 40,000 ticketed fans in attendance (while supplies last). The game will air nationally on ESPN (10 PM ET).
