Jackie Robinson painting (11X14)
This item, a painting of Brooklyn Dodger legend Jackie Robinson on an 11x14 wood canvas, is 1 of 1. There is no other like it.
Lost Ballparks artist Michael Koser has created a new series of original paintings, "Lost Ballparks Legends" featuring some of baseball's all-time greats.
"When he stepped onto the Ebbets Field grass on April 15, 1947, Jackie Robinson changed the landscape of the National Pastime - and the nation itself. It was a victory for civil rights, a momentous cultural shift and the beginning of a long journey... all embodied by the Brooklyn Dodgers first baseman." - National Baseball Hall of Fame
Jackie Robinson will always be remembered for breaking the color barrier, but he was also one of baseball's all-time greats! He was a 6x All-Star, World Series Champion, NL MVP who absolutely brought an electricity to baseball that the game had never seen! He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962 and his number, #42, was retired across MLB.
“Jackie Robinson made his country and you and me and all of us a shade more free.”
