On July 16th, 2013, Mitchell & Ness is honoring Jackie Robinson with the release of 42 limited-edition boxes. The box, made of oak and decorated with memorable statistics comes with an Authentic, all wool, number 42 Jackie Robinson Jersey made here in America. Jackie Robinson's life and legacy will be remembered as one of the most important in American history. Playing for the Dodgers for over a decade, Robinson's outstanding sportsmanship along with his role in breaking the color barrier, led to his 1962 induction as the first African-American in baseball's Hall of Fame. Since then, Major League Baseball has permanently retired Robinson's uniform number, 42. He is the only baseball player who has been honored in such a way. Please feel free to share our gift with the world.
