The below cards is a 1948 R346 Blue Tint card. This is one of several different oddball rookie cards that exist of him. These cards are blank backed and were issued in uncut strips. So every card is hand-cut.
Below is a 1949 Old Gold Cigarettes advertising card.
Below is one of the 1947 Bond Bread Jackie Robinson cards. Unfortunately, my card is very beat up.
This next card is one of my favorites. Below is a 1967 Topps Retirado Venezuelan card. These cards are very scarce and notoriously hard to get in good shape. A vast majority of cards made for the Venezuelan market were glued into scrapbooks; hence the paper loss on the reverse.
Below is a 1951 "Batter Up" Jackie Robinson Baseball game.
Below is a WNBC jumbo postcard of Jackie Robinson.
Here is a 1973 Hall of Fame Picture Pack photograph of Jackie.
For the life of me, I cannot remember the name of the set that the below Robinson card belongs to. I know it was made in 1977.
I am also not quite sure where the below two collector move cells come from. As you can see, a couple of movie film cells were cut and inserted into these cards. Unfortunately, I was unable to get a better scan of the cells. The tops cell features Pee Wee Reese, Duke Snider and Jackie Robinson holding a very large bat, and the bottom cell is of Roy Campanella and Jackie.
