Legendary Auctions: Campy, Jackie and the Duke

Here is a great vintage photo from the 1956 Goodwill Tour of Japan from Legendary Auctions. It features an enthusiastic crowd clamoring for autographs from Duke Snider, Roy Campanella and Jackie Robinson. As the typeset says:
"The Brooklyn Dodgers, champions of the National League, now on a Far East Goodwill Tour, seem to have brought their jink across the Pacific with them. They have lost two of the first three games to Japanese teams and Japanese sportswriters are now saying openly that there is nothing to be learned from the Dodgers, anyway."
Those are some pretty tough words. It sold for $100.00.
