    Description

    1955 Brooklyn Dodgers Team Signed Baseball. Direct from the personal collection of Hall of Fame manager Walt Alston comes this team sphere recalling the most beloved of all Brooklyn Bums teams, the squad that finally got the better of the hated Yanks that glorious October of 1955. Twenty-four World Championship signatures are here in total, with authentic autographs from Robinson, Campanella, a tough rookie Koufax, Alston himself, Hodges, Podres, Erskine, Gilliam, Labine and Frank Kellert, whose presence assures 1955 vintage. Four clubhouse signatures, penned in blue ink at a later date, include Snider, Reese, Furillo and Hoak. Autograph quality averages an impressive 7/10, and the ONL (Giles) ball remains very clean with only minor surface wear. Letter of provenance from Alston's nephew is included. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
