In the Fall Classic for the first time since departing Brooklyn, the 1959 Dodgers prevailed in six games. On a triumphant roster headlined by legends such as Snider, Hodges, Koufax and Drysdale, it was little-known relief pitcher Larry Sherry who garnered World Series MVP laurels, finishing all four of the Dodger wins while collecting two wins and two saves. For his efforts, Sherry was awarded this Hickok belt buckle. The 10-karat gold accessory features a relief figure and wreath with engraved identifiers reading “S RAE HICKOK AWARD – PROFESSIONAL ATHLETE – LS.” On the hollowed reverse, the engraved legend reads “HICKOK CHAMPION OCTOBER 1959 LARRY SHERRY BASEBALL.” This unusual relic is as stunning today as it was upon its presentation more than half a century ago!
