NOTES:
 
   On April 22, 1957 demonstrators massed a rally in front of Borough Hall to protest the Dodgers leaving Brooklyn. Groups of sandlot players in uniform, and fans carried signs in protest. These "Keep The Dodgers In Brooklyn" buttons were distributed by the Keep the Dodgers in Brooklyn Committee, who started a petition drive for 1,000,000 signatures. The "Keep the Dodgers in Brooklyn" pins were also handed out to fans entering Ebbets Field on opening day, April 19, 1957.

The 1-1/2 inch diameter, Dodger Blue pin back button that features the Dodgers Script logo reads, "KEEP THE Dodgers IN BROOKLYN" in white print. The manufacture credit line printed on the rim reads "Spiegel Nov Co. INC" Beware of reproductions. These pins are very rare and the back of the pin which has a relief of the Union label could be a distinguishing factor.
