Released in 1950, The Jackie Robinson Story was a widely successful biographical film despite being released during the segregation era. Starring the incomparable Jackie Robinson, the filmís tagline was You'll HIT With Him! You'll RUN With Him! You'll SLIDE With Him! Offered is a seldom seen Spanish lobby card from said film, featuring a lovely black and white 8x10 photo depicting Robinson stepping into the all-white clubhouse. In whole the lobby card measures 11x14 and was likely released in Cuba or Mexico. The text translates to read The Jackie Robinson Story, Starring Jackie Robinson, Ruby Dee, Minor Watson, Richard Lane; Distributed by United Artists, the drama of a man who fought with a ball, a bat and a glove; as big as the sport which brought him fame. The thick-stock lobby card remains complete and relatively clean, with only a pair of light corner wrinkles and varying degrees of corner wear. The photograph has survived incredibly well, and as a whole there is no fading or overly obtrusive imperfections. A seldom seen lobby card that will satisfy even the strictest of Jackie Robinson collectors.
