1949 All Star Game Program @ Ebbets Field Robby, Campy, Newk,& Doby In 1st Game For Sale
VINTAGE ORIGINAL RARE! HISTORIC! 1949 BASEBALL ALL STAR GAME OFFICIAL PROGRAM at BROOKLYN DODGERS – JACKIE ROBINSON, ROY CAMPANELLA, DON NEWCOMBE and LARRY DOBY all in FIRST-EVER ALL-STAR GAME - ONLY ONE AT EBBETS FIELD - BROOKLYN DODGERS HOSTS!!
This sale is for a beautiful, very rare, historic and desirable 1949 ALL STAR GAME BASEBALL PROGRAM at EBBETS FIELD. All original vintage official Program from July 12, 1949. Only All-Star game ever hosted by Brooklyn Dodgers. This game replaced the one for 1942 which was moved to the Polo Grounds in upper Manhattan due to wartime blackout fears. A great opportunity, these are nearly impossible to find, especially this nice! A. L. won this 16th All Star Game, 11-7 before tiny crowd of 32,577, making this so tough. Virgil Trucks won over Newcombe. This historic game marked the first time that black players were selected for an All-Star Game. Fittingly, the game was held at Ebbets Field, where Jackie Robinson had democratized Major League baseball two years previously. These players included Robinson, Roy Campanella and Don Newcombe for the National League and Larry Doby for the American League. Most felt that the new diversity of talent would finally tip the scales to the National League. However, this game belonged to Joe DiMaggio, who had a single, a double and three runs batted in. American League manager Lou Boudreau had received a bit of heat for adding DiMaggio to the squad. He was battling a heel injury, hadn't played until June 28 and was a non-contender in fans' balloting. However, Boudreau chose him as a reserve and put him in the starting lineup when Tommy Henrich injured his knee. It turned out to be one of the smartest and sneakiest moves ever in an All-Star lineup.
