There are few bigger moments (if any) throughout baseball history than Don Larsen's perfect game in the 1956 World Series. That Game 5 masterpiece put the Yankees up 3-2 but the series would go the full seven games with the Yankees closing out the Dodgers in a 9-0 rout. Shortly after the season ended, Jackie Robinson was traded to the crosstown rival New York Giants but refused to report, opting for retirement instead. That makes Game 7 of the 1956 World Series Jackie Robinson's last game. This game-used baseball was part of the action for that Game 7 and comes with a notarized letter from none other than series MVP Don Larsen, who decided to save a ball from the final game, not knowing it would be Jackie's last. The letter is signed twice by Larsen, and the ball is completely inscribed in Larsen's hand, with "Don Larsen 1956 World Series Game Used" on the sweet spot and "Yankees 9 Dodgers 0 Ebbet's Field Jackie Robinson's Last Game" on the panel below. Plenty of game use is displayed. A phenomenal piece of baseball memorabilia for several historical reasons.
