Description

NOTE: It was just brought to our attention that the date of "1959" and the words: "Coliseum", "Los Angeles" and "Chavez Ravine" were added in ink after the 1955 Champions scarf was produced. It still looks terrific, however these were added in black ink and were not part of the original manufactured scarf.

This unique decorative accessory embraces the Dodger franchise, colorfully celebrating championships on both coasts. Specifically, the item is a silk scarf measuring approximately 34x35 with rounded corners. The artifact was designed, of course, for those on a first name basis with the Flatbush and Los Angeles heroes, as franchise staples "Jackie," "Duke," "Pee Wee," "Cookie," and "Gil" (among others) fleck the path of designs depicting the Brooklyn and Los Angeles venues, as well as Willard Mullin's beloved "Bum" and a proclamation of "1955 1959 World Champions." The piece presents beautifully with still-vibrant colors and is free from tears or fissures of any kind. This piece was most likely made following the 1959 season, as the club’s 1963 feat is not mentioned.
