Branch Rickey Signed AUTO photo Baseball HOF Cards Dodgers D. 1965 PSA/DNA

Branch Rickey (D. 1965) was an innovative Major League Baseball (MLB) executive elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1967. He was perhaps best known for breaking Major League Baseball's color barrier by signing African American player Jackie Robinson, for drafting the first Afro-Hispanic superstar, Roberto Clemente, for creating the framework for the modern minor league farm system, for encouraging the Major Leagues to add new teams through his involvement in the proposed Continental League, and for introducing the batting helmet.

Offered is a signed newspaper photo that measures 3.5” x 5” in size that we believe derives from the Ambrose Edens collection. Signed in steel tipped fountain pen. Rickey is pictured in his office when he was heading up the Brooklyn Dodgers.

Encapsulated authentic by PSA/DNA.
