    This is a gold and diamond belt buckle given to Bucky Walters for his participation in the 1949 MLB All-Star game (he was a coach for the NL). The significance of this piece is that it was the only All-Star Game played at Ebbets Field, home of the Brooklyn Dodgers and more importantly was the first All-Star game that African Americans participated in (Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella and Don Newcombe for the NL and Larry Doby for the AL)
