In the 40s, as a reflection of the American society, the league was composed only of white athletes and managers, presenting a marked racial barrier concerning black athletes.

For them, there were two options: quit baseball or seek a career in the other Leagues, founded exclusively so that the marginalized could play the sport as a source of income.

However, someone had to break the racial barrier. Jackie Robinson was responsible for this achievement, a player who was part of the Kansas City Monarchs when signed by Branch Rickey’s Brooklyn Dodgers (now the Los Angeles Dodgers).

Jackie Robinson with Gold Chase Funko Pop! is now available for pre-order at the links below (click to jump!) It’s expected to be released in April 2022.

Injustice, cruelty, insults… Jackie Robinson experienced all of this in the flesh because of her skin. Sublime, challenging, inspiring. That’s how he exposed to the world the cowardice of prejudice. He won a victory for everyone.

On April 15, 1947, nearly 75 years ago, Robinson became the first black man to play in the big leagues, the MLB. No, he was not the first black man to play baseball. But, he was the first black man to play white man’s baseball.

Robinson changed not only the history of baseball. He changed the history of the sport.
