Jackie Robinson 1950s Comic Book Covers

With the new flick, 42, opening next week...
...let's look at the superb covers for the short-lived (and never reprinted) groundbreaking comic book series from Fawcett Comics that ran from 1950 to 1952, now being offered as posters and prints, digitally-remastered and restored from the actual covers, by a good friend of ours!
Collect all six for a kool wall display!
They'll also be doing reproductions of the poster and lobby cards for the first Jackie Robinson movie The Jackie Robinson Story (1950), starring the man as himself (in his only movie appearance) along with Ruby Dee as Rachel "Rae" Robinson, and Minor Watson as Branch Rickey.
Here's the complete movie...
In the new movie, Chadwick Boseman is Jackie Robinson, Nicole Beharie is Rachel Robinson, and Harrison Ford is Branch Rickey.
