Porcelain 10” Plate Commemorating Don Larsen’s 1956 World Series Perfect Game.
Lot 576. Porcelain 10” Plate Commemorating Don Larsen’s 1956 World Series Perfect Game. In Game 5 of the World Series on Oct. 8, 1956, Larsen pitched the first and only perfect game in World Series history. He faced only 27 batters, disposing of four future Hall of Fame members – Pee Wee Reese, Duke Snider, Jackie Robinson and Roy Campanella. Sal Maglie pitched well for the Brooklyn Dodgers, but New York won, 2-0. Titled “The Perfect Game,” the plate has a representation of Larsen pitching with Yankee Stadium in the background. Below his image are the words “Perfect – Start to Finish” and the box score and line score for the game. A label on the underside has the plate made for the Little Jones Co. by the Henberad Corp. The plate has a slight imperfection, seemingly as produced, in the “P” in “Perfect.” Nm-m, attractive and scarce. Winning Bid $83.
