    Description

    1957 Brooklyn Dodgers Team Signed Baseball Pristine ball from the Brooklyn Dodgers during their last season in New York before migrating with the New York Giants to the West Coast. In 1957, a marketing executive in a New York advertising agency was given two team signed baseballs for his son and daughter -- both radid Dodger fans. The balls were given to the exec by one Sal "The Barber" Maglie in appreciation for his idea of using "The Barber" in an advertising campaign for Remington electric shavers. Includes strong signatures from the following Hall of Famers: Walt Alston (sweetspot), Roy Campanella, Don Drysdale, Gil Hodges, Sandy Koufax, Pee Wee Reese, and Duke Snider. Other notables among the 25 blue ink signatures that cover this ONL (Giles) baseball include Roger Craig, Carl Erskine, Carl Furillo, Jim Gilliam, Clem Labine, Charley Neal, Sal Maglie, Don Newcombe, Rube Walker, and Don Zimmer. With such a large percentage of Dodgers balls from this era being the "clubhouse" variety, it's the rare exception that comes directly from a player and includes none of these secretarial examples. Signatures all rate 9-10 on this exceptional ball. LOAs from James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA and Mike Gutierrez/MGA.
