Description

    1951 Brooklyn Dodgers Team Signed Baseball. Though late season heartbreak was a common malady for 1940's and 1950's Brooklyn Dodgers fans, no other bunch of Bums provided the agony that the 1951 incarnation did, first surrendering a six-game late season lead and then a Bobby Thomson walk-off "shot" for all the marbles. This ONL (Frick) ball from one of the most thrilling pennant races in Big League history provides twenty-seven 8/10 and better blue ink autographs from all the legendary figures: Robinson, Campanella, Newcombe, Furillo, Branca, Lavagetto, Pafko and more. Pitler, Walker, Williams, Haugstad, Erskine, Hodges, Dressen, Snider and Reese appear in clubhouse format. A small degree of surface wear and a dime-sized brown spot cause no significant concern. A very solid example from the definitive Boys of Summer squad. LOA from PSA/DNA. LOA from James Spence Authentication. Guide Value or Estimate: $1,200 - $1,500.
