Jackie Robinson Paintings

I collected "Diamond Kings" Baseball cards as a kid. These cards were produced by Donruss. Paintings by Dick Perez. These cards were awesome.

Today is April 15, which means it's Jackie Robinson Day. Robinson played his first Major League game at Ebbets Field on April 15, 1947 as a first baseman for the Brooklyn Dodgers.

I was trying to see if Perez has done any paintings on Robinson and I was able to find this.
