    Description

    1953 Brooklyn Dodgers Team Signed Baseball. A dream come true for one young Brooklyn resident, who was named "Best Catcher Today" on the popular "Happy Felton's Knot-Hole Gang" television program, and earned this impressive team sphere for the distinction. One panel of the ONL (Giles) ball is reserved for the handwritten details of the award, dated "June 13, 1953," with the balance of the horsehide surface coated with the autographs of eighteen Bums, and a nineteenth signature from John McGavin, a Little Leaguer from Felton's program. All your favorites are here: Robinson, Campanella, Reese, Snider, Hodges, Erskine, Branca, Gilliam, Dressen, Podres, Lavagetto, Furillo and more, averaging a consistent 8/10 throughout. A magical keepsake that embodies the thrill of being a young Brooklyn Dodgers fan. Auction LOA from James Spence Authentication.
