    Description

    1955 Al "Rube" Walker Brooklyn Dodgers World Championship Watch. The back-up to the Brooklyn Dodgers' Hall of Fame catcher Roy Campanella earned this special prize for his part in finally bringing joy to the borough of Brooklyn, vanquishing the hated Yankees after five heartbreaking Subway Series. According to our records, this is just the second such wristwatch to have been presented at public auction in recent years (George Shuba's being the other), and the only one still retaining its original leather band. The "Bulova" brand watch was gifted to a close friend of Walker's not long after Next Year finally arrived, and is consigned by a family member of that friend. The verso of the watch case is engraved "Al Walker, World Champions, 1955." The watch remains in fine, operational condition. An important memento from one of the most beloved teams in baseball history.
