Baseball fans have the chance to bid on a valuable piece of baseball history.

A jersey worn by former Brooklyn Dodgers player Jackie Robinson in 1950 is up for auction at lelands.com.

The site says there's only a handful of "all original" Robinson jerseys in private hands.

In 1947, Robinson became the first African-American player in Major League Baseball history.

Fifty years later, his number 42 was universally retired.

Yankees closer Mariano Rivera is the only remaining player allowed to wear the number.

Bidding on Robinson's jersey is open until December 21.
