Goldin Presents The Jackie Robinson 75th Anniversary Auction

Goldin celebrates Jackie Robinson’s 75th anniversary of breaking the color barrier with an amazing auction featuring rare Robinson items and other impeccable cards and memorabilia items.  Fans who are interested in registering or bidding in the auction should visit goldin.coBidding is now open and will conclude on multiple days April 30 – May 2, 2022.

The culturally-significant items from Robinson, the first African American to play Major League Baseball in the modern era, include:

  • 1951 game-worn Brooklyn Dodgers home jersey. The jersey has “DODGERS ” sewn on in blue felt across the chest and Robinson’s league-wide retired number “42” on the back. The fully authenticated jersey was worn during one of Robinson’s best seasons of his Hall-of-Fame career.

  • The bat that Robinson used during the 1949 All-Star Game held in Brooklyn. It was during the ‘49 season that Robinson cemented his reputation as one of the game’s best hitters. Robinson would later recall this game as his chance to prove himself against some of the biggest names ever to play in the Big Leagues.

  • The National Baseball Hall of Fame plaque that was presented to Robinson during his induction on July 23, 1962. Robinson was the first Black person elected to the Hall of Fame, a fact not originally included on his plaque, as Robinson instructed those who voted for him to judge him on his talent and achievements alone, not his race.

His courage and strength in the face of ignorance are a continued inspiration and handling the sale of these items – the tools that he used to change the world – is a true honor.”
