1956 working press pass for the Brooklyn Dodgers as issued to Leonard Cohen, not the Canadian songwriter but the American journalist who served as sports editor for the New York Post and was a sportswriter until his 1974 retirement.  The pass gained Cohen access to Ebbets Field for the entirety of the 1956 season.  Despite strong eye appeal, the pass does exhibit many signed of use, including surface wear and soiling, two small pinholes on either end, and significant edge wear.  Still, an excellent document of the final year that Brooklyn would win a World Series.
