We have a baseball that was signed by Jack Robinson. The team played in Norfolk Va in the 1940's There are several other names on there too. One is Eddie Robinson. and several others. Does anyone know about this baseball.?
I have been able to make some of the other names on the baseball besides Jack Robinson. Tommy Byrne/Pitcher, William Eddie Robinson/ first baseman, Glenn McQuillen/nickname Red, Frank Octavius Mancuso/catcher, Jeff Cross,George Maier,Russ Meyer, Sig Broskie,Hank Schenz, Eddie Robinson, Johnny Rigney, Jack Conway. I spoke with a man at a muscium in Tex and he said he didnt think that Jackie Robinson ever signed his name as Jack Robinson but after doing some research I found a place that he did sign his name as Jack Robinson. I checked his signature and this is really close to his signature. I had a hard time reading the other names on the baseball but his was very clear. That was one of the things that the musium fellow told me about his signature.
Oh well I have made some photo's and going to send them to him so he can view the baseball.
