Pitted face-to-face and felled by their cross-borough Bronx rivals in each of five Fall Classic endeavors between 1941 and 1953, the Brooklyn Dodgers were beloved, nonetheless, as perennial “bridesmaids” and depicted as such in famed cartoonist Willard Mullin’s “Dem Bums” portrayals. Finally, in 1955, Flatbush had a winner as a resilient Dodger squad overcame a two games-to-none deficit and at long last defeated those Bronx Bombers. As a result, 1955 Dodger artifacts are among the most desirable in the circles of Senior Circuit collectibles. This 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers team-signed ball is a “Dodger Blue” treasure on any coast! The creamy ONL Giles sphere (grade “7”) features blue ballpoint pennings averaging (“8-9”) potency with no clubhouse signatures! We challenge you to find a more pristine gathering of ’55 Dodger autographs, much less an assortment rendered at the time of the title rather than those commonly found on “reunion” souvenirs. Includes: Sweet Spot: Herman (coach) and Alston (manager); North Panel: Meyer, Gilliam, Shuba, Campanella, Zimmer and Furillo; South Panel: Howell, Roebuck, Newcombe, Black, Amorós, Hodges and Reese; West Panel: Labine, Snider, Pitler (coach) and Erskine; East Panel: J. Robinson, Kellert, Hughes, Walker and Podres. Full photo LOA from JSA.
