After decades of being referred to as "Dem Bums", the Brooklyn Dodgers peaked in the mid-1950s. The crowning point before departure to the West Coast came in 1955, when the "Boys of Summer" rose up to defeat the New York Yankees in the World Series. A fair number of 1940s-1950s Dodgers, including several important stars of the 1955 team, are found here in this collection of Brooklyn Dodgers multi-signed items. Auction LOA from JSA.
