    Finally!!

    1955 Brooklyn Dodgers Team Signed Baseball, PSA/DNA NM-MT 8.
    It's the great David and Goliath story in baseball. The Yankees represented the white collar crowd--bankers, lawyers and captains of industry--fittingly clad in stuffy pinstripes. The Dodgers were "the Bums," championing the downtrodden working class in this "lesser borough" of New York, and always coming up a little short in October. But after falling to the Yanks in 1941, 1947, 1949, 1952 and 1953, "Next Year" finally came on October 4, 1955, when Johnny Podres pitched the lovable losers to a shutout victory in Game Seven to bring the first ever World Championship to the Ebbets faithful.

    This is the finest team ball we've ever encountered from that sole World Championship edition of Brooklyn baseball, an ONL (Giles) sphere bearing twenty-five autographs without a single clubhouse example. All of the key figures are here: Robinson, Campanella, Snider, Reese, Koufax, Alston, coach Billy Herman, Hodges, Newcombe, Podres, Erskine and the essential Frank Kellert, whose single season of Ebbets residency ensures 1955 vintage.

    The autographs have been assessed at an 8/10 level by the experts at PSA/DNA, who assign a 7/10 rating to the ball itself. A half-point bonus for the spectacular aesthetics concludes the composite grade. Full Grading LOA from PSA/DNA, NM-MT 8. Full LOA from SGC Authentic.
