On April 15, 1947, the great Jackie Robinson broke Major League Baseball’s color barrier by starting at first base for the Brooklyn Dodgers against the visiting Boston Braves at Ebbets Field. It would change baseball’s racial landscape forever and make the game more inclusive for everyone, players as well as fans. Presented here is an official 1947 Brooklyn Dodgers Program and Score Card from that memorable season. The cover photo shows a Dodger player sliding into home plate, while the inside pages reveal the starting lineups for both the Pittsburgh Pirates and the host Dodgers. But seeing as how the Dodgers hosted the Pirates on three different homestands that season, it’s difficult to pinpoint from which specific game it originated. Its overall condition is good, with some wrinkling evident, along with tiny edge tears and wear at the spine.
