thank you jackie robinson

here's a card from 2010 topps tribute, which seemed fitting to post today - the anniversary of jackie robinson's major league debut.
i still remember a car ride home from dodger stadium circa 1979 with my dad telling me about jackie and the integration of baseball.  i spent a long time in the car considering the fact that i might not have been able to see dusty baker or reggie smith play for the dodgers had i (and they) lived in a different time.  that was just plain crazy to me.  still is.
