Jackie Robinson Shows his Character in Note Available at SCP Auctions

For decades collectors have been known to write to their favorite star.  Often, the fan would ask for an autograph to have as a keepsake, but from time to time they seek for a little bit more.  Featured in this post is a little bit of Dodger Correspondence from Jackie Robinson to a collector that is certainly notable.  It is available on auction at SCP.

Check it out below.  It says:
“Dear Roger,

I believe my greatest accomplishment was my ability to accept the racial abuse I did early as it was certainly not my nature to do so.

As you can see, a fan named Roger asked Jackie what he believed was his greatest accomplishment in his career.  Jackie responded by noting his willingness to turn the other cheek.  I think we can all agree that he was right.
