On April 15, 1947 history was made. That was date Jackie Robinson made his major league debut for the Brooklyn Dodgers, becoming the first African American player to play in the major leagues.
This Thursday and Friday, two baseball contracts signed by Robinson will be displayed a Busch Stadium. The owner plans to sell them in an auction. If you are interested in viewing these pieces of baseball history now is your chance!
