Ink blotters are a curiosity of the past and were designed to be defaced.  Happily this example from the early days of Jackie Robinson's career avoided its intended fate.  The Hall-of-Fame star power here is undeniable; in addition to Robinson, Joe DiMaggio and Bob Feller are featured, as is Mel Allen, enshrined in the Broadcaster's wing at Cooperstown.  Sid Gordon, a solid player for the Giants, rounds out the New York-centric roster of stars.

The condition if this was a card would be considered Excellent, with just some very light corner touches evident. The light green color tint is bright and the images are crisp.  Size is approximately 3 1/4" x 6 1/8". Robinson remains a key hobby icon, with never-ending popualrity.
