For Brooklyn Dodger purists, the angst still lingers from the 1951 playoff loss in Harlem, but the memories live, as well, with this baseball autographed by (24) members of that Flatbush roster (with no clubhouse signatures). The mildly toned ONL Frick orb (grade “6”) has scattered surface abrasions, an almost indiscernible coat of period shellac and ballpoint pennings averaging (“5-6”) strength. Keys include: Campanella (“5”), Hodges (“5”), Reese (“5-6”), J. Robinson (“6-7”), Snider (“6”) and D. Williams (“5”). Full photo LOA from JSA. More on our website.
