tomorrow marks what would have been jackie robinson's 100th birthday. to celebrate the occasion, here are the six cards from the 2017 topps throwback thursday 'proud to wear 42' set (i recently added the full set to my '42' collection).
i am sure you are familiar with the oft-quoted statement jackie made:
"a life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives".
his life was important. thank you jackie robinson.
