Gladys Gooding Signed Record - Follow the Dodgers
Starting Bid - $100, Sold For - $120
Vintage record, featuring the song Follow the Dodgers, signed in blue ink on the center label (grading "9/10") by legendary Brooklyn Dodgers organist Gladys Gooding. Gooding, of course, is the recording artist for the song, which also includes vocals by the Bank of Manhattan Co. Choral Club. Gooding was well known to New York sports fans during the 1940s and 1950s, as she was the longtime organist at both Ebbets Field and Madison Square Garden. She died in 1963 at the age of seventy. This is the first Gladys Gooding signed item we have ever seen, let alone offered. Though its monetary value may be somewhat modest compared to many other items in the auction, this is a fascinating and unusual rarity, and we suspect that this item will be a tremendous and long-awaited find for some extremely advanced Brooklyn Dodgers collector! The record is in Excellent condition and is housed in a plain brown record sleeve. Together with a vintage record titled The Giants Win the Pennant, which features the last half inning of the third playoff game between the Giants and Dodgers in 1951, as called by Giants radio announcer Russ Hodges. Excellent condition and housed in its original album sleeve (Vg-Ex). Total: 2 records. Full LOA from James Spence/JSA. Reserve $100. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $120
