1947 Dodger Tie
1947 was a magical year for the Dodgers. Jackie Robinson had broken the color barrier as the teams first baseman and the team found themselves in the World Series after a 6 year hiatus. Unfortunately, they lost to the Yankees in 7 games, but at least they won the pennant as National League Champions.
Above is a vintage tie from the old borough that celebrates the teams feats from that year as it includes the handwritten names of 26 Dodger players on it. It is made of silk and appears to have been well used by a proud fan. Of great coincidence, the tie happens to measure 47 inches in length. Check it out at Legendary Auction.
