Description

The loveable “Bums of Brooklyn” bravely rebounded from their 1951 collapse to win the 1952 National League pennant by four-and-a-half games. Honoring this talented squad, presented is a 1952 Brooklyn Dodgers team signed baseball with (23) signatures. Headlined by tougher autographs from Jackie Robinson and Gil Hodges, a stellar supporting cast graces the panels of this ONL Giles baseball. The signatures on this ball are preserved by a thin coating of lacquer, while the Snider and Furillo pennings have been deemed “clubhouse”. Included are 1952 Brooklyn Dodgers Team-Signed Baseball: (23 signatures, mostly “9-10”) Sweet Spot: Dressen (d.1996, “10”); West Panel: Shuba (“9”), Landrum (“9”), Pfister (d.1997, “9”), Loes (“10”), Reese (d.1999, “9”), Erskine (“10”); East Panel: Bridges (“8”), Rutherford (“9”), Branca (“9”); North Panel: King (“9”), Pafko (“8”), D. Williams (“9”), Holmes (“10”), Cox (d.1978, “7”); South Panel: J. Robinson (d.1972, “7”), Amoros (d.1992, “9”), Roe (“10”), Hodges (d.1972, “9”), Black (d.2002, “10”) and Labine (“9”). Other than the fore mentioned Snider and Furillo clubhouse examples, the signatures on this baseball come with a COA from James Spence Authentications.
