Jackie Robinson Cap

Conservation work is under way to preserve the cap Jackie Robinson wore (B-101.72) during the 1955 World Series in which the Brooklyn Dodgers defeated the New York Yankees in seven games. This was the first World Series victory for the “Dem Bums” after seven previous losses including five to the cross-town foe “Bombers.”

Thank you to Robert Sanzone for the generous donation to fund this conservation work, ensuring that this cap will be preserved for generations to come.
