When You Want to Wear Your Pride on Your Tie - at Huggins & Scott

Nothing says you're a fan better than wearing a jersey and cap, but what if you're at work?  Not many folks can get away with that get-up while employed, so what is a fan to do?

If you don't mind something vintage (and likely out of style) then this item available at Huggins & Scott Auctions is right down your alley.

Featured below is a 1947 Brooklyn Dodgers National League Championship tie featuring various pennants and facsimile autographs of 26 players; including Rookie of the Year Jackie Robinson.  Other players include Pee Wee Reese, Gil Hodges, Carl Furillo and Ralph Branca.

As you know, this was the year Jackie broke the color barrier in Major League Baseball and was the teams first appearance in a World Series in six years.  Unfortunately, they would lose to the Yankees in 7 games, but I think it's fair to say that this season marked a new era for Dodger Baseball.  Over the next decade the Dodgers would win six pennants and a World Series crown in 1955.

I wonder how this would look on me with a jacket and slacks.
