This set contains cards of each of the players who broke the color barrier in each of the 16 cities with Major League teams at the time of Jackie Robinson's debut, April 15, 1947.  Without the courage of these pioneering players to overcome racist threats and intimidation, our great country, its national pastime, and our hobby could not have moved forward.  Two of these pioneering players had such short careers that they didn't get a baseball card during their 'play years' (John Kennedy and Nino Escalera).

Notes: This set requires specific cards. There will be no additions or deletions to the list of cards required, which can be viewed on the Set Composition page.
