Exquisite 1955 Roy Campanella Brooklyn Dodgers uniform from a World Series and MVP season. Originally sourced from Campy's wife as she donated it to an auction at which our consignor purchased, this set was displayed at the Brooklyn Historical Society for 26 years, being loaned in 1989 and removed in 2015. It was displayed in the "Brooklyn's History Museum" exhibit (1989) and "Dodgers Do It!: Celebrating Brooklyn's 1955 Big Win!" (2005), and photo-matched? to 50385312 and 97282481. Set consists of jersey, uniform, and stirrups (two different): 1) Gray road jersey with "Campanella" embroidered on front tail, wash tag and "Set I 1955" tagging inside front tail, Rawlings Hall of Fame Flannel and size 44 tagging in neck. All original numbering and lettering. 2) Pants: Tagged "Extra" with handwritten "Campy" in waist, big and baggy which was the style Campy wore, Rawlings Hall of Fame Flannel tag, wash tag, size 38 tag, and "Set I 1955" tag. 3) Stirrups: Two, each is a different type. After nine years in Negro and Mexican Leagues, Campanella joined the Dodgers in 1948 and was considered one of the game's greatest catchers before suffering paralysis from an auto accident during the 1957-58 off-season. As though the wearer and didn't provide enough incentive, this set is near-perfect, receiving a MEARS A9.5 grade (LOA included), losing just .5 points for minor reverse staining. Despite being wheelchair-bound, Campy remained in the Dodgers' organization in scouting and community relations and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1969. Top of the line offering from a top of the line star. Jersey has been photo-matched by Sports Investors and comes with their photo-matching LOA.
