With Major League Baseball celebrating the career of Jackie Robinson this week I thought this recent find was timely. It's also incredible!
While rummaging through eBay I came across a listing that had my eyes glowing. Featured is a complete and practically mint 1950 deluxe Jackie Robinson doll display package; complete with every original item enclosed.
You can see the original doll in fantastic condition, the hanging tag, original cap and shoes, jacket (which you never see in this condition), bat, pocket baseball game, cardboard infield display and the original box.
It had a huge price tag on it, so it went unsold - $5,500.00. It's far pricier than other Robinson dolls I've run across, but it also happens to be one of the best representations of the collectible I've ever seen.
