Jackie Robinson #42 Vintage "Black"
You may know Jack Roosevelt Robinson ("Jackie") as the player who broke the color line in the MLB on April 15th 1947. A Rookie of the Year, a 6 time all-star, the NL MVP and a World Series Champ but his importance spreads far beyond that. Jackie carried the weight of desegregation of professional athletics on his shoulders when he crossed the color line. His failure would have definitely curtailed the careers of Willie Mays and Henry Aaron and Jim Brown and Bill Russell. His success as the first African American in a team sport paved the way for all those who came after him in every league. Jackie's success wasn't limited to the field either, he was also the first black television analyst in the MLB, the first black VP of of a major American corporation, one of the establishers of an African American owned bank in the 60s.
