1963 Los Angeles Dodgers World Champions Team Signed Baseball PSA/DNA
Emphatically demonstrating the "Age of the Pitcher" were the Dodgers of 1963. We might say that the franchise was best prepared for the 1960s as both leagues deadened the ball a bit and elevated the mound a few silly millimeters. The net results of all this were lower batting averages and reduced home run production. The first beneficiaries were Drysdale and Koufax. And as things shook out, Perranoski chose 1963 to ply a career performance. With such incredible fire power, it's little wonder that Los Angeles claimed the National League's pennant and then went on to sweep New York in October (a bitter trouncing that the Yankees hadn't suffered since 1922). It was in a similar spirit of excellence that 30 of those Dodger champions penned this ONL (Giles) ball in 1963. The ball is virtually perfect with pronounced stampings and an ideally white surface, and the blue ink signatures are all clear and legible. The sweet spot has been signed by twin Hall of Fame managers Alston and Durocher. Joining them are Reiser, Becker, Breeding, Tracewski, Koufax, Rowe, Calmus, Wills, Sherry, Gleason, Perranoski, Skowron, T. Davis, Howard, Drysdale, Richert , Griffith, Roseboro, Walls, Camilli, Moon, Gilliam, Fairly, Ferrara, McMullen, Mulleavy, Podres, and Miller. That this team signed ball dates to the '63 season is fully confirmed in the appearances of one-year Dodgers Marv Breeding, Ken Rowe, Roy Gleason and Dick Calmus. The sphere still resides in its original Spalding box, accounting for the stunning like-new condition. This item comes with a Letter of Authenticity from PSA/DNA.
