    Description

    1952 Roy Campanella Game Worn Brooklyn Dodgers Pants. Rare garment is just the second Campy uniform piece we've ever been fortunate enough to handle, the first having been a slightly damaged pair of road grey pants which realized $5,377 in our May 2008 Signature Auction. The presented pair of home white flannel pants has survived the passing decades far more handily, exhibiting fine wear but none of the tearing or staining typical of six decade old uniforms. They date to yet another National League Championship season at Ebbets, almost certainly worn behind the plate for at least a portion of the four World Series games played in Brooklyn that year. Interior waistband holds a beautiful embroidered felt swatch reading "Campanella 52-2," still firmly affixed with less than 10% of the seam breaking free. Below are three tags indicating "Dry Clean Only, Rawlings St. Louis, 38." All buttons of the fly and rear pockets are original. The pants, along with the Carl Erskine jersey likewise presented within this auction, were acquired from a lucky Dodgers farm club pitcher who was issued the uniform as a hand-me-down. LOA from Heritage Auctions.
