Circa 1950 Jackie Robinson Book Bag
Starting Bid - $100.00, Sold For - $464.00
Extremely rare circa 1950 Jackie Robinson book bag (10 x 14 inches). This book bag was part of a line of products featuring artwork by legendary sports artist Willard Mullin of stars such as Ted Williams, Bob Feller, and Stan Musial. We have seen wallets, pencil boxes, even key chains from this line, but this is the first book bag we have seen. The book bags were probably far more expensive than the other products and this probably accounts for its extreme rarity. The brown bag has a faux-leather finish and has moderate wear including some minor edge chipping. The image of Robinson with facsimile signature on the front pocket is strong and without flaws. Overall in Very Good condition. This is a very interesting and rare novelty item featuring the great Jackie Robinson. Reserve $100. Estimate $200/$400. SOLD FOR $464.00
