“There’s not an American in this country free until every one of us is free.” –Jackie Robinson
He was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1942. He broke the color barrier in baseball in 1947. But in between, in 1944, Robinson — a member of the 761st “Black Panthers” Tank Battalion — fought for his rights. He refused to sit in the back of an Army bus that summer, resulting in his arrest. It was an incident that followed him into the Major Leagues, when he changed the course of history with the Brooklyn Dodgers.
In keeping with the spirit of their service, we have partnered with our friends Jay Glazer and Nate Boyer at MVP (Merging Vets and Players). In addition to normal royalties going to the estates of our featured Icons, we will be matching the royalty proceeds and donating them to MVP.
MVP empowers combat veterans and former professional athletes by connecting them after the uniform comes off; providing them with a new team to assist with the transition, promote personal development, and show them they are never alone.
Officially licensed by Jackie Robinson.
