I want to compare my father’s passports from 1955 to my passport in 2018. The first picture shows the outside cover. Not very interesting back then or now.
The next photo of his passport is interesting in that they put his occupation as PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL PLAYER. They also state that he doesn’t have a wife or kids. This was issued on October 5th, 1955 – the day after the Brooklyn Dodgers won their first World Series. My father was in New York getting his passport when they won. He was playing with the Mobile Bears – a farm team of the Dodgers – that year.
