I'm sure this flag has seen it all. According to the auction description, it:
Originates from a descendant of the original recipient whom relates that it was obtained by her father, from an Ebbets Field grounds crew member, following the 1955 World Series.It would look so great on my wall. Unfortunately, the $7,500 to $10,000 estimated value far exceeds what I can dish out.
The next three items below all relate to Jackie Robinson.
First, check out a 1954 Jackie Robinson "Major League All-Stars Barnstorming Tour" program, and it's been signed by Jackie in one of the inside pages.
And here is a Jackie Robinson All-Stars barnstorming team souvenir pennant. It is unclear if this is an companion piece to the above program, but you have to think they were once sold side-by-side.
To finish off this post, below is an original painting of Jackie Robinson by Arthur K. Miller. As you may know, Miller's work has graced the cover of numerous magazines and has been an consistent presence at NSCC for many years. He's even had his work distributed by the Baseball Hall of Fame.
