Destined for their third Fall Classic in six years (and October doom at the hands of the Bronx Bombers), (24) members of the 1952 Brooklyn Dodgers gathered to sign this ONL Giles baseball. The sphere appears to have once been shellacked, though subsequent flaking has affected the signatures, which at one time showed (“9-10”) strength but now average (“6”). Keys include: Campanella, Erskine, Furillo, Hodges, Labine, Reese and J. Robinson. Full photo LOA from JSA. More on our website.
