After years of struggle the Brooklyn Dodgers established themselves as a National League powerhouse in the 1950s. Presented are (2) items signed by (30) 1950s Brooklyn Dodgers players, coaches and announcers. The first item is 22x19 yellow handkerchief signed by (22) with a quality range of (5-9) including Hall of Famers Alston (d.1984, 5), Campanella (d.1993 9), Koufax (7), Reese (d.1999, 6; Clubhouse), Robinson (d.1972, 6) and Snider (d. 2011, 8). The second is a scorecard section measuring 7-1/4 x 4-3/4 signed by (8) with an (average 8-9) strength. Full photo LOAs from JSA. More on our website.

The heavy duty cloth handkerchief is complete and intact with a full complement of to be expected folds and presents vivid color with minor soiling which does not detract from the signatures. The signers include (22) players, coaches, announcers and team officials including (3) unknown. This piece also includes what may possibly be two or three partial signatures/initials which are not counted in the total number of signers. The scorecard section is from a vintage 1950s program and is perfectly suited to be framed as is or for cutting out the individual signatures for framing and matting with photos of the represented players. Please note, the letter R from Roy in the Campanella signature overlaps and unknown signature however it is distinct and clearly recognizable as the first letter of Roy.
