Description



1951 was a rough year for the Dodgers, losing a huge lead and subsequent three-game playoff to the crosstown rival Giants. This 48-page yearbook, however is sure to brighten the mood of any Brooklyn baseball fan. Presenting in approximate (VG-EX) condition with deference to the left edge, which has been reinforced by a 1-2" piece of tape that affixes the cover to the remainder of the program. Individual pages of the publication have been signed by Roy Campanella, Jake Pitler (d.1968) & Duke Snider respectively (signatures average "9"). Of note is the fact that the Campanella represents an early exemplar of the penning of the coveted Hall of Fame catcher. Full photo LOA from SGC.

 

Also includes 1956 plaque (approximately 9x14, crest-shaped) presented to Roy Campanella in low-to mid grade condition (multiple surface scratches). Reads "To Roy Campanella for his inspiration to youth as a great athlete and exponent of clean sportsmanship February 2, 1956. The Philadelphia Edition of the Pittsburgh Courier".
