Somehow I thought this was the 75th anniversary of JR breaking the color barrier. I have now crosschecked my math, which is bad in the first place, and find out this is year 74. Are we going to see JR as a cover on pre-order again next year for an actual milestone 75?
Have I been pwnd?
I think the 42 is because this is the year that the negro leagues were elevated to major league status and jackie has always been that figurehead.
Thank you. For whatever reason when it was first announced I thought it was a case where when you do the math it didn't count the starting year. But when I stopped overthinking it I realized it was 74 years. I love the support for Jackie and the foundation and honestly would be happy with Jackie on the cover every year.
