Vintage Jackie Robinson Memorabilia that Features Baseball Fighting Discrimination

Several years ago, at the start of this blog, I shared numerous items from my Jackie Robinson collection.  With today being an official holiday throughout the league, I figured I would do that again since it had been so long.  Unfortunately, as I searched out those older post to pull out the pics I realized that the quality of the scans were remarkably horrible.  Nevertheless, a couple of pics looked fine, so here they are below.  Thankfully, it was a couple of vintage 1950's era ink blotters that are perfect for the day.  Check them out below.  BTW, when I get home tonight I'll scan some other items in order to share them.

The below blotter features Mel Allen, Joe Dimaggio, Sid Gordon, Bob Feller and Jackie Robinson.  It says:
"...and remember fans... in America HITS are made by men of EVERY race, religion and color"

"Keep pitching... Keep swinging... AGAINST racial and religious prejudice."
