Jackie Robinson baseball debut in 1946....
Item # 659192
April 19, 1946
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, April 19, 1946.
* Jackie Robinson's baseball debut (1st report)
* First African American - Black player in MLB
The front page of section 2 (sports) has a nice three column photo with heading: "OFF TO A HOME RUN START" with text. (see) Also a small one column heading: "Smash Hit!" First report coverage on Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier. A historic report in both baseball and black Americana. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Complete with all 40 pages, some small biding holes and a little wear along the spine, small library stamp within masthead, generally very nice.
