Circa 1947 Bond Bread Jackie Robinson "Batting"

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,185

Graded EX 60 by SGC. Bright, crisp, clean example of Jackie Robinson (batting follow-though pose) from the thirteen-card 1947 Jackie Robinson Bond Bread set. Issued one card per loaf of Bond Bread, this example features the advertising-reverse style which bears Robinson's facsimile signature and the tag line "Folks, why not eat the bread that Jackie eats?" This card is particularly outstanding in terms of condition, presenting at a level even stronger than suggested by its technical grade. Striking image with near-perfect centering (a few degrees to the right), strong corners showing tiny touches of wear (a little more in the upper left), and a clean reverse. Recent research reveals that this pose, along with the eleven other advertising-back cards, were actually issued a couple of years later than the portrait pose in this set, which is why we have added "circa" to the lot title. This is an extremely attractive card of the Brooklyn Dodgers Hall of Famer, dating from his earliest days in the Major League. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $1,185
