Jackie Robinson Comic - The Legend of the Blue Knight


Hey Greg, I finally found one!

A couple months back I had the pleasure of finally meeting several bloggers at a LA area card show.  One of those folks was Greg Zakwin - writer of Plaschke, Thy Sweater is Argyle.  He snagged a little item that had me green with envy.  Greg found a copy of a Jackie Robinson comic that was distributed by the Dodgers in 1997.  This was put together in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier.

Well, thanks to a recent purchase on ebay consisting of a large lot of Dodger memorabilia, I now have a copy to call my own.  Yesterday, I showed you my Don Drysdale Club 53 restaurant ceramic cup from that purchase.  Now, I share a Jackie comic book that came in that lot.

I've yet to read it, but will do that soon.

(This is the back cover of the comic book)
