Jackie Robinson Feature in Sports Card Magazine

Here's an excerpt from Chuck's latest Sports Card Magazine contribution about Jackie Robinson:

Jackie went on to attend Pasadena Junior College and eventually UCLA. While pursuing higher education, Robinson’s athletic abilities continued to shine on all fields. Then came the attack on Pearl Harbor and United States’ involvement in World War II. Drafted into a segregated Army unit, Robinson was eventually stationed at Fort Hood in Texas. While stationed in Texas, an incident occurred that may have saved Jackie’s life.
