Perennial bridesmaids and fierce combatants against cross-town rivals in the Bronx and Harlem, the Brooklyn Dodgers were finally able to reign supreme as they bested the pinstripers in the 1955 Fall Classic. This ONL Giles ball is autographed by (16) of those beloved “Bums.” The creamy orb (grade “7”) is decorated with blue ballpoint pennings (average “6” strength) with keys including: Alston (“6” strength), Campanella (“6” strength), Hodges, Koufax (“5-6” strength) and J. Robinson (“5” strength). Full photo LOA from JSA. More on our website.
