    1954 Roy Campanella Game Worn Jacket & 1960's Worn Cap. We wouldn't have believed it if our consignor didn't have the (included) cancelled check to back up his claims, but the pieces presented in this lot were actually purchased directly from Campanella at his 1978 yard sale. Best is his personal windbreaker from his 1954 "Campanella All Stars" barnstorming tour, a rare relic from a team that featured Campy and the top African-American talent of the day including Monte Irvin, Larry Doby, Minnie Minoso and Don Newcombe. As you can see from the images, the tackle twill "All Stars" lettering has been removed from the back of the nylon jacket, but the outline is still very clearly visible. "Wilson [size] 44" label remains at interior collar. Snap buttoned front functions fine. Los Angeles Dodgers cap is tagged "New Era [size] 7 3/8," and admittedly has no player attribution, but Heritage attests that it derives from the same consignor who assures us that it was purchased from Campy. Visor is cracked but cap still presents perfectly despite this. Cancelled check is endorsed on verso by Campy's wife.
