    JACKIE ROBINSON POCKET GAME. Commonly, we don't think of Jackie Robinson in the context of the commercial athlete/endorser.  But in 1949, he captured the National League's MVP, and from that springboard came this so-called 'pocket game.'  We're duty-bound to assure the reader that, based on its EX/MT condition, this fold-over amusement never saw the gloam of a pocket.  For that matter, with the exception of minor wear in the cover's upper right corner, we'd estimate it's never been played.  With a convincing likeness of Robinson on the cover, it opens to a 6 1/2" x 9" playboard with little metallic dials, slide indicators and scoring spools.  This piece is absolutely requisite to a broad range of collecting enthusiasts.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
