Jackie Robinson Jersey Auction

Jackie Robinson Jersey Auction

FILE - In this Sept. 23, 1947, file photo, Brooklyn Dodgers baseball player Jackie Robinson, right, receives the keys to a car from tap dancer Bill Bojangles Robinson as Jackie Robinson's wife, Rachel, looks on at Ebbets Field in New York. The car was presented to Robinson in celebration of the team winning the National League championship. A rare jersey from Jackie Robinson's historic rookie season with the Brooklyn Dodgers 70 years ago could be available for someone with a few spare millions. The jersey, part of a Heroes of Sports offering by Heritage Auctions, has been certified by Mears, one of the top memorabilia authentication companies. It is accompanied by a letter from Robinson's widow, Rachel, saying it is the one brought home by the Hall of Famer at the end of the 1947 season, when he became the first black player in the majors and earned Rookie of the Year honors.
