Now that Mariano Rivera is retired from baseball no one will ever wear the number 42 in MLB again. (We just happen to be giving away a baseball signed by Mo Rivera so enter now). This is because it belonged to Jackie Robinson, one of the most influential athletes in sports history. The Brooklyn Dodgers helped Robinson break the color barrier in the 1940’s and we are going to give away an original Brooklyn Dodgers Pennant found at Ebbets Field concession stands during that time period as part of our 12 Days of Giveaways with Brigandi’s Collectables.

The pennant itself is from the 1940s, measures 9″” x 3.5″” and is valued at $100. We’ve pulled together 42 iconic photos of Jackie Robinson to show you the history of this fascinating piece of baseball history.
