Jackie Robinson’s story is found on countless baseball cards by Chris Olds

Every card has a story.

I’ve written it countless times and it’s still true. Today is an historic anniversary in the history of Major League Baseball and the 2010 Topps Heritage card above (No. 403).

Rather than recap Jackie Robinson‘s place in baseball history, I’ll let this rather affordable ($1 or less) piece of cardboard tell the tale.

Read the card back after the jump.
