42 42s

Those are 42 cards that could not have been made 70 years ago. And more than 40 players who could not have appeared on a major league baseball card 70 years ago.

They all have one other thing in common.

Each card is wearing the No. 42 on the back.

Thanks again, Jackie.


  1. Ahh 42. The answer to the ultimate question of Life, the Universe and Everything..

  2. Had me wondering too. Nice job.

  3. As baseball fans, we ALL wear 42 on our backs in tribute to Jackie and for the responsibility to provide equal treatment and opportunity to all in life.

    I can attest that this country still has a long way to go but my life, and my kids' life, are much better because of the sacrifices of others that came before us even though my skin color is not the same as Jackies.

    Ask yourself: How is my life better because of #42?

  4. Made it down to Gooden before I realized what was really going on here.
