1939 UCLA Bruins Jackie Robinson Press Pass – PSAGo Back
Out of stock
After graduating from Pasadena Junior College in spring 1939, Robinson enrolled at UCLA, where he became the school’s first athlete to win varsity letters in four sports: baseball, basketball, football, and track. He was one of four black players on the Bruins’ 1939 football team; the others were Woody Strode, Kenny Washington, and Ray Bartlett. Washington, Strode, and Robinson made up three of the team’s four backfield players. At a time when only a few black students played mainstream college football, this made UCLA college football’s most integrated team.They went undefeated with four ties at 6–0–4.
Presented from the time Robinson was at UCLA playing football is this press pass when they faced California at the Los Angeles Coliseum on November 4, 1939. UCLA won this one 20-7 with Robinson at halfback for the Bruins. Overall, a tremendous collectible from a crucial point in Robinson’s evolving talent. The stub was encapsulated and authenticated by PSA as GOOD 2 (MK). Of note, the verso has glue residue from previous display.
