Many items in the Brooklyn Baseball Gallery were previously housed in the Brooklyn Dodgers Hall of Fame once located on the former site of Ebbets Field. And though there’s a small display dedicated to the Cyclones—with a scorecard from the inaugural game and the newspaper article announcing the team's name—most of this two-room space is devoted to past glories: bats from legends like Jackie Robinson and Gil Hodges; hats from the likes of Pee Wee Reese and Sandy Koufax; quirkier memoribilia like the LP Follow the Dodgers signed by team organist Gladys Gooding. The Dodgers’ lone World Series victory gets special attention with a copy of the famous “WHO’S A BUM!” Daily News back page from October 5, 1955, and a replica of the championship banner autographed by famous visitors like former Dodger Ralph Branca, Hall of Fame announcer Ernie Harwell, and The Boys of Summer author Roger Kahn.Extra
