Jackie Robinson (HOF)


The short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: The first thing you notice about Jackie is his blazing speed, unusual for a man that weighs 195 pounds. He’s also quick in the field, whether he’s playing second, third, or first base. He started with the Kansas City Monarchs for two seasons before signing with the Montreal Royals for the 1946 campaign. It was a rip-roaring year, and Jackie batted .349 with 40 stolen bases. The rise to the Dodgers and fast company the following year did little to slow him down. In fact, he was the difference that enabled Brooklyn to take the crown. In 1949 he batted .342 and swiped 37 bases, with the team taking honors once more.
