Description

Although the Dodgers did not win the Championship in 1947, they did make World Series history as the first team to field a black player--Jackie Robinson in his rookie year. This was also the first post-season classic to be televised. And more history might have been made in game four had Cookie Lavagetto not broken up Bill Bevins's no-hitter with two out in the ninth. In 1949, although the Dodgers again went down to defeat at the hands of the Yankees, they created an historical footnote in Game 5 when the lights at Ebbets Field were turned on in the ninth inning, the first World Series game played under artificial lighting. Rounding out this offering are 1946 and 1951 Brooklyn phantom World Series pins. All four pins have the original threaded post and all but the 1949 have the Dieges and Clust manufacturers stamp. The 1947 pin grades (EX) with the other pins grading in the (EX-MT) to (NM) range.
