With 105 victories and a National League pennant to their credit, this 1953 Brooklyn Dodgers team-signed baseball with (23) signatures showcases the best that Flatbush had to offer. The worn ONL Giles sphere (“4”) displays moderate soiling, toning and surface abrasions throughout. The relatively legible endorsements average (“4-5”) with several having moderately faded over the decades. Additionally, the name of the original owner is etched on the upper sweet spot. Key signatories include Sweet Spot: Dressen (“5”); East Panel: Reese (“3”); North Panel: J. Robinson (“5-6”), Black (“6”); South Panel: Campanella (“5”), Cox (“5”) and Snider (“4”).
