Real-photo postcard featuring Jackie Robinson as a member of the Brooklyn Dodgers, signed boldly in blue ink "Best Wishes/Jackie Robinson" on both the front and the reverse, Encapsulated by PSA/DNA, with each signature graded MINT 9. Originally produced in the late 1940s, and intended for use by Jackie to fulfill autograph requests, this 3-1/2 x 5-1/2 inch postcard was also used as a promotional item by the Jackie Robinson Clothing Store, a men's apparel retail outlet located in Harlem which Robinson owned from 1952 to 1958. Apparently, well after his playing career ended, Jackie continued to use this card to honor autograph requests, evidenced by the postmark on the back dated "Sep 6 1966 Stamford, Conn". This may be the only twice-signed Jackie Robinson postcard in existence. The card itself exhibits a few minor edge and border creases. This is clearly one of the boldest and brightest of this postcard ever seen. Dating back more than 50 years, this prized relic has withstood the test of time, just as Robinson's legacy and his impact on the game continues to endure.

In Excellent condition overall, encapsulated by PSA/DNA with each signature grading MINT 9.
