Sensational cover photo of Jackie Robinson who, in 1947, became the first Major League Baseball player to break the color barrier. Also includes article "Jackie Robinson's Double Play" which describes his starring in a new season of baseball games as well as a movie about his life, complete with thirteen additional photos of Robinson, his family, and others. This very interesting issue also includes an article and photos of naked 'Doukhobors on the Rampage' in British Columbia, a sensational two-page photo of an X-1 supersonic rocket ship just as it was released from the belly of a B-50, a lovely photo-illustrated article on Paris model Christiane Richard, and an article by reformed Communist Ruth Fischer who explained that Titoism was an international revolt against Stalin. This 152 page issue is complete and unmarked with average wear and a mailing label upon its front cover. Moderate musty/old magazine scent. A sound copy of this excellent and historic issue.; Folio
