There was also another Robinson-related occurrence that happened earlier this week: A note written by Robinson discussing the importance of smashing the color barrier sold for an astounding $13,021 at an auction.
The note, auctioned off by RR Auction in Boston, was written in response to a question asking what he considered to be his greatest accomplishment.
This is what Robinson had to say:
“I believe my greatest accomplishment was my ability to accept the racial abuse I did early as it was certainly not my nature to do so.”
