    Description

    1956 World Series Multi-Signed Program with Robinson, Campy, Mantle. From a Series best remembered for Don Larsen's Game Five perfecto comes this official program that saw action at Brooklyn's Ebbets Field. Though the program features just ten autographs from those gentlemen participating in the Fall Classic, the fan was marvelously discerning when choosing his targets. In fact, half of them are now enshrined in Cooperstown: Mantle, Snider, Reese, Campanella and Jackie Robinson. Among the remainder are the always welcome Gil Hodges, and the very rare Charlie "The Brow" DiGiovanna, the famous adult "bat boy" for the Bums whose knack for forgery resulted in his creating hundreds upon hundreds of "team signed" Dodgers baseballs to fulfill autograph requests. For the hundreds of autographs we've seen signed by DiGiovanna, this is one of the first times we've seen Charlie sign his own name! The program itself shows typical wear for its age, but the pencil autographs inside remain identical in strength to the day they were placed on the pages by these Big Apple baseball heroes. LOA from PSA/DNA.
