JOHNNY PODRES and CLEM LABINE. Signatures: "Johnny Podres" and "Clem Labine", 6x4½ album leaf. The 23-year-old PODRES became a Brooklyn legend in 1955 when he pitched the Dodgers to their first-ever World Championship. After spending 1956 in the Navy, Podres was a consistent winner on strong Dodger staffs from 1957 to 1963. He used a good fastball, a curve and an outstanding changeup. In 1957 he led the NL in both ERA (2.66) and shutouts (6). In 1961 he won a career-high 18 games and led the NL in winning percentage (.783). The free-spirited sinker-baller LABINE was one of baseball's premier relievers in the 1950s. The durable player helped the Dodgers to four pennants in Brooklyn and another in Los Angeles. Labine was 13-5 in a NL-leading 60 appearances for the 1955 World Champions and led the league in saves the next two seasons. He retired Dodger-killer Stan Musial 49 consecutive times. After leaving the Dodgers, Labine pitched for the Pirates in the 1960 WS. Irregular left edge. Each signature shows through faintly, touching the other. Otherwise, fine condition.
