It's tough to do a lead-in to anything relating to Jackie Robinson that fully gives him his due, but that's how it is when you're talking about a man who did so much for America's game. He first burst into the scene in 1947, breaking the color barrier and bringing the Negro league's style of play to the Majors, drawing attention for his skill and for what he represented. With Robinson as their spark, the L.A. Dodgers when on to win six pennants in his 10 seasons donning the classic white and blue jersey, hitting a (.342) and batting in 124 runs the year he was named league MVP. Since his retirement, the MLB has permanently retired his number, 42, and Mitchell and Ness is stepping up to do their part with an equally numbered limited-edition box set. Each is made with oak and decorated with memorable stats from his time on the diamond. Inside, an authentic, all wool number 42 Jackie Robinson Jersey is neatly tucked inside. With such limited numbers and such grandiose style, you'll have to check with Mitchell & Ness quickly for more information if you want to claim one for yourself.
