Today is the 68th anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in Major League Baseball.

In celebration, which has become a tradition since 2008, all Major League players and coaches wear #42, Jackie Robinson's jersey number.

In 1997, Major League Baseball retired #42 from every team. Only players who wore the number prior to that season were allowed to continue wearing it.

I decided to go through my autograph collection to see how many players I could find where the #42 was prominently shown.
