Leo Durocher Signed 1953 Document Testimonial for Chesterfield Cigarettes JSA COA

Leo Durocher was a good-field, no-hit shortstop for 17 years, but gained his greatest notoriety for accomplishments after his playing days. His combative and swashbuckling style, brilliant baseball mind, uncanny memory and fiery disposition became "The Lip's" trademarks as a colorful and controversial manager for 24 seasons with the Dodgers, Giants, Cubs and Astros. He compiled 2,009 wins in 3,740 games, captured three pennants and won the World Series in 1954. He was named Manager of the Year three times by the Sporting News. Following his playing career he embarked on a successful and highly controversial managerial and coaching career that eventually resulted in his induction into the Hall of Fame in 1994.
