Affectionately known as the "Boys of Summer" and one of the most beloved teams of all time, the 1955 Dodgers won their first and only World Series Championship while still in Brooklyn. Having lost the World Series to the crosstown rival Yankees in 1941, 1947, 1949, 1952 and 1953, the Dodgers finally came through in a breathtaking seven game series, capped by a Game 7 Johnny Podres shutout in Yankee Stadium. Hall of Famer Duke Snider hit four homers in the Series. This Natick Hardwood Official Dodger logo baseball was signed in blue ink by 23 members of this great Brooklyn Dodgers team, during Spring Training of 1955. The signatures include manager Walt Alston (HOF) on the sweet spot, rookie Sandy Koufax (HOF), HOFers Jackie Robinson, Pee Wee Reese, and Roy Campanella, Gil Hodges, Don Hoak, Clem Labine, Carl Furillo, Walt Moryn, Joe Black, Bert Hamric (played two games with the 1955 Dodgers), Pete Wojey, and Bob Milliken (who did not make the 1955 team after Spring Training but played on the 1954 team), Norm Larker and Joe Pignatano (who did not make the 1955 team after Spring Training, sent back to the minors) and several others. This very clean ball shows even overall toning, with signatures that grade an 8. Accompanied by a LOA from James Spence Authentication.
