Winners of the most N.L. pennants (5) during the 1950s, the Dodgers yielded to upstart Pittsburgh in 1960, but not before pacing the circuit in team ERA (3.40) and stolen bases (95). The offered ball was signed by (23) members of that squad. The creamy unofficial orb (grade “7-8”) features blue ballpoint pennings that trumpet (“8-9”) or better strength throughout. Highlights include: Alston (manager), Gilliam, Hodges, F. Howard, Snider and Wills. Full photo LOA from PSA/DNA. Complete details on our website.

Sweet Spot: Alston (manager); North Panel: Snider, Hodges, Wills, Becker (coach) and Neal; South Panel: Pignatano, McDevitt, Reiser (coach), F. Howard, Mulleavy and Roebuck; West Panel: N. Sherry, B.

Note: there is a very small application of period shellac applied to Alston’s autograph and extending slightly onto the east panel. This protective agent is very thin and does not offset the overall quality of this well-preserved sphere.
