Description

    1959 Roy Campanella Night Trophy Presented to Bobby Shantz & More. His Hall of Fame teammate Jackie Robinson exhibited enormous courage at the start of his Major League career, and Roy Campanella showed his own at the end. Paralyzed in a tragic automobile accident just weeks before the Dodgers debuted in Los Angeles, Campy never lost his positive attitude or the affection of his millions of fans, over 93,000 of whom turned up at the Los Angeles Coliseum to pay their respects to the superstar catcher on May 7, 1959. Presented are three relics from the occasion, most notably a trophy cup mounted on a wooden base that was issued to Yankees pitcher Bobby Shantz. The bowl itself is engraved, "Yankee-Dodger Game, In Honor of Roy Campanella, May 4th, 1959, Los Angeles Coliseum," while a small plaque affixed to the wood base reads, "Los Angeles Examiner Award Presented to Bobby Shantz, with Sincere Appreciation for Participation in the Yankee-Dodger Game." General handling wear is apparent throughout. Approximate dimensions of the entire display are 17x10x7". Also here is a ticket stub (EX) and program (G-VG due to loose but present cover) from the game.
