1955 Brooklyn Dodgers World Champions Team-Signed One-Dollar Silver Certificate with Jackie Robinson and Roy Campanella
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,680
1935 United States one-dollar silver certificate signed in black ink, both on the front and back, by the following twenty-five members of the 1955 World Champion Brooklyn Dodgers: Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella, Sandy Koufax, Pee Wee Reese, Duke Snider, Billy Herman (coach), Gil Hodges, Sandy Amoros, Don Hoak, Ed Roebuck, Karl Spooner, Johnny Podres, Rube Walker, Russ Meyer, Don Zimmer, Carl Furillo, Don Newcombe (twice, one is a clubhouse signature), Frank Kellert, Clem Labine, Junior Gilliam, Carl Erskine, Walt Moryn, "Shotgun" Shuba, Billy Loes, and Dixie Howell. The signatures are all fairly uniform in grade, averaging "9," but a few contrast poorly against the dark green background of the bill. This is the first one-dollar silver certificate we have ever seen signed by the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers and it may be unique. 1955, of course, was a historic season for the Dodgers franchise as it captured its first and only World Championship while in Brooklyn. The victory in 1955 was especially cathartic for the residents of Flatbush, as it erased the bitter memories of four recent World Series losses, not to mention an excruciating playoff loss to the Giants in 1951. This is certainly the most unusual Brooklyn Dodgers team-signed item we have ever seen and an exceedingly rare souvenir from that memorable World Championship season, not to mention an wonderful conversation piece. The bill (6 x 2.5 inches) displays normal handling wear and is in Excellent condition overall. Full LOA from PSA/DNA and LOA from James Spence/JSA.
