Pair of official Montreal Royals programs featuring two of the game's most groundbreaking figures: Jackie Robinson and Roberto Clemente.

The 1946 program features the first stop on Jackie Robinson's journey to the Majors, with an interior team photo that includes not only Robinson but also Roy Partlow, Robinson's roommate and the third African-Ameriican player on the team (the second was pitcher Johnny Wright).  The scorecard is in VG/EX condition with some fading to the image along the left and right edges.

The 1954 program features the first stop on Roberto Clemente's journey, displays in VG/EX condition with some minor wear, is also unscored and the Royals' roster, in addition to Clemente, features future Hall of Famer Tom Lasorda.  

Two extremely significant programs.
