Burt Shotton Brooklyn Dodgers D.1962 Signed GPC Jackie Robinson Manager JSA

Burt Shotton (D. 1962) was an American player, manager, coach and scout in Major League Baseball. As manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers (1947, 1948-50), he won two National League pennants and served as Jackie Robinson's first permanent major league manager.

Offered is a signed GPC that Shotton signed in blue ink postmarked September 27, 1950 from Brooklyn; the day the Dodgers would play the Boston Braves in a doubleheaders (they won one game and lost the other) and addressed to a young collector named Richard Merkin (who became a noted American painter and illustrator).  Little did he know back in 1950; that he would be one of the featured people on the Beatles’ Sgt Peppers album cover.
