Jackie Robinson Day!!!

In honor of Jackie Robinson's MLB debut (April 15, 1947), all of MLB's players and coaches will be wearing the number 42.

So here on this humble little blog, I thought it'd be nice if we did the same thing.

Robinson's 1952-1956 Topps cards. No, I don't own any of them.

His 1997 Topps Card #42, honoring the 50th Anniversary of his MLB Debut.

His 2009 Topps Shortprint card #30.

Here's to you Mr. Robinson. Thank you.

One of the all-time greats both on and off the field and deserves the accolades for what he went through.

I'm going to the A's Red Sox game today. Looking forward to all the 42's on the field...and a sweep on the Red Sox.
