Jackie Robinson and highlights from the year after he played for the Montreal Royals – his rookie year of 1947, when he broke MLB’s colour barrier.
During his debut in 1947, becoming the first African American in the 20th century to play major league baseball, Jackie Robinson hit .297 and led the National League with 29 stolen bases. The Brooklyn Dodgers won the National League pennant that year and Robinson was awarded Rookie of the Year.
The vintage glove used for this artwork is a 1940’s Spalding model MO, similar to one he used.
This artwork is of the back side of the glove and the backdrop to this image is a nod to the scoreboard at Ebbets Field, the famed home stadium of the Brooklyn Dodgers.
The companion art print of the front side of this Painted Glove is also available (LINK to Front of Glove Print HERE)
