COOPERSTOWN, NY – Several artifacts featured in the new motion picture release ‘42’ have arrived in Cooperstown at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and will be featured in a new exhibit to open in July to pay tribute to the film’s portrayal of Jackie Robinson in breaking baseball’s color barrier in 1947.

The film ‘42’ opened nationwide on Friday and follows the story of Robinson and Dodgers executive Branch Rickey, both members of the Hall of Fame, as Robinson is signed from the Kansas City Monarchs, through the end of the 1947 regular season, his first in the major leagues.

Artifacts now in Cooperstown from the film include: Brooklyn Dodgers jersey, pants, stirrups and cap worn by Chadwick Boseman, who played Jackie Robinson; and the fedora hat worn by Harrison Ford.

The artifacts will be featured in a year-long exhibit at the museum and will remain a permanent addition to the museum’s collections.
