Description



As much a Brooklyn Dodgers fixture as Ebbets Field and Willard Mullin, adult batboy Charlie “The Brow” DiGiovanna was an expert at forging the signatures of each and every player. Recruited for such an endeavor in 1956, DiGiovanna came through on this (ONL) Giles orb. The medium-toned sphere is home to 23 pennings in DiGiovanna’s hand. The blue ballpoint names bear striking resemblance to the actual player autographs and include Alston, Jackson, Lehman, Newcombe, Labine, Hughes, Mitchell, Amoros, Snider, Reese, Furillo, Walker, Cimoli, Bessent, Robinson, Campanella, Erskine, Becker, Hodges, Gilliam, Craig, Koufax and Neal. Auction LOA from JSA.
