    Circa 1950 Roy Campanella Original News Photograph Used for 1951 Bowman Card from The Gene Kirby Collection, PSA/DNA Type 1.

    UPDATE: This photograph is now encapsulated by PSA/DNA as Type 1, and thus will not be accompanied by a letter.

    The three-time National League Most Valuable Player dueled with Yogi Berra for supremacy behind the plate during the late 1940's and 50's before an automobile accident tragically altered his life. Here we see Campy as we most like to remember him; throwing off his mask at Ebbets Field in pursuit of a pop-up. This image was used for his 1951 Bowman card, 1951 Wheaties Premium, 1952 Wheaties, & 1967 Topps Venezuelan. "Brooklyn National League Baseball Club, Inc." stamp on verso with "Roy Campanella, Brooklyn Dodgers" penned on attached wax paper. Measures 9x7" and NM. Letter of provenance from Gene Kirby's daughter. LOA from PSA/DNA, Type 1.
