Pee Wee Reese and Johnny Klippstein sign an album leaf.
Signatures: "Pee Wee Reese" and "Johnny Klippstein", 3¾x3 album leaf. HAROLD "PEE WEE" REESE (1918-1999), who earned his nickname as a young marbles champion, was the Brooklyn Dodgers shortstop on seven pennant-winning teams and one World Championship during his 1940-1942, 1946-1958 career (last year in Los Angeles). "The Little Colonel" was at his best in the field and in providing leadership as Captain of the Dodgers. A white Southerner from Kentucky, one of Reese's greatest accomplishments was winning Jackie Robinson's acceptance by his teammates. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1984. JOHNNY KLIPPSTEIN (1927-2003) was sometimes called "the wild man of Borneo" because of his frequent control troubles. In 1958, he was made almost exclusively a reliever by Dodger manager Walter Alston. With the Indians for one season, Klippstein had a league-leading 14 saves in 1960. Five years later, teaming in the Minnesota bullpen with ace Al Worthington, Klippstein went 9-3 with five saves to help the Twins to their first pennant. He finished with 66 career saves. Irregularly cut. Slightly creased at lower blank margin. Fine condition.
