    Great book! I read it recently and was blown away by his attitude towards life. Obviously there wouldn’t be able to be any copies that were signed unaided, but I was able to find this from an old Heritage auction.

    To be clear, I don’t own this.

    These are incredible. I am amazed that these have never found their way to the Hall of Fame.

    Thanks!

    It’s hard to believe but both Jackie Robinson’s only minor league contract and his 1947 Dodgers contract are not in the Hall. They are actually up for auction at Goldin’s upcoming auction ($5M starting bid for the pair).

    While Jackie Robinson is obviously very popular, I feel like Integration gets far less attention than it deserves.

    Campanella is my favorite player of all time. I can only dream of acquiring a piece like that! Amazing!

    Hey! Glad you like it!

    Not sure what your budget is but if interested, I have this rare 1946 Nashua Dodgers team signed autograph album that I am open to moving. (Wouldn't mind clearing up some funds after purchasing the contracts).

    The number of Campanella pre-rookie signed items is pretty limited.
