1957 Dodgers Yearbook.jpg
The Dodgers played in nine World Series during their years in Brooklyn, and each is depicted on the cover of their 1957 yearbook, which features artist Willard Mullin's iconic Brooklyn Bum. The 1957 Dodgers fell short of number 10, and then moved to Los Angeles--making this the last yearbook ever sold in Brooklyn. Absent from the team that season was Jackie Robinson, who quit baseball after learning he had be traded to the hated Giants. Roy Campanella suited up for his final big-league campaign, as a car accident the following winter left him confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. The Dodgers spent their last season in Brooklyn a couple of young arms--20-year-old Don Drysdale and 21-year-old Sandy Koufax. They would pitch the team to a championship in 1959.
