In 1997, Major League Baseball paid tribute to the first Afro-American ever to play professional baseball. Of course we are talking about Jackie Robinson. During his career he was the M.V.P. in 1949. He was inducted into Hall of Fame in 1962. In 1997 the Major League developed the “Breaking Barriers patch that was worn on the sleeve of every Major Leaguer’s jersey during the season, which marked the Golden Anniversary of Jackie Robinson’s breaking of the color barrier. The patch was always a fan favorite. One variation of this patch exists. The Montreal Expose was the only team to wear a French version of the patch on their home jerseys. We are excited about what we have to offer here, it is as beautiful as it is unique. We simply refer to it as the “Breaking Barriers” jacket. It is a collegiate style jacket with a navy blue, wool front and back. The sleeves are a cream color pinstriped leather. On the back of the jacket is a very large “Jackie Robinson 50th Anniversary patch also made of leather. The patch on the back spans the width of the jacket from shoulder to shoulder and practically covers the back. It is lined with heavy padded insulated nylon, and the word “Brooklyn” is scripted in leather across the front with a red leather “42” below. The left sleeve has the stars and stripes patch with “Hall of Fame 1962.” the opposite arm has a round baseball patch, again in leather, with “M.V.P. 1949.” To top it off, it is trimmed with a leather collar. This garment is of the highest quality. The size is “XXL.” A very unique jacket made by the Whitestar Sports Apparel Co. The condition of the jacket is virtually brand new, with no apparent sings of dame or wear.
