Keep the Dodgers in Brooklyn

With the recent nostalgic display by Neil Diamond at Fenway Park on Sunday I thought it might be a interesting to put up some memorabilia items related to the "Keep the Dodgers in Brooklyn" campaign.  Check them out below.

The above pin is probably one of the rarer and most sought after collectible item from this era.  It measures 1-1/2" in diameter and features a union mark on the reverse.  Very few real vintage pins like these exist.  In fact, original examples regularly sell for over $500.00 in auctions. Numerous reproductions exist.

Below is a vintage music sheet from 1957 of a song called "Let's Keep the Dodgers in Brooklyn" by Phil Foster. 
Here is the actual recording for your enjoyment.
