Robinsons’ Dodgers Contract Sells For $276K – Jackie Robinson’s 1949 contract with the Brooklyn Dodgers sold for $276,000 early Monday morning. The price paid was more than 20 times what was paid in 2000 ($13,558) for a large collection of Robinson’s items auctioned off by his widow, Rachel. Only contracts of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig have sold for more, Dwyer said. The contract itself sold for more than what the Dodgers paid Robinson that year, factoring for inflation. The contract was for $21,000, which is approximately $215,000 in today’s dollars.
