Ebbets Field Photograph Signed By Over 100
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,265.00
Large panoramic display photograph (16 x 20 inches) of historic Ebbets Field signed by over 100 members of the Brooklyn Dodgers organization. Taken during one of the classic Yankee-Dodger World Series games of the 1950's, this photograph captures the flavor and personality of Ebbets Field, from its cozy dimensions to the advertising signs across the leftfield wall. Signed in bold, blue sharpie by an almost countless array of Brooklyn Dodgers, including "Duke Snider," "Pee Wee Reese," "Sandy Koufax," "Ralph Branca," "Preacher Roe," "Mickey Owen," "Don Newcombe," "Johnny Podres," "Joe Black," and "Carl Erskine" among other players, coaches, and team personnel. All signatures are large and bold, and are virtually flawless, grading "10" on a scale of 1 to 10. It is obvious that when this photograph was signed, the players appreciated the significance of the tribute to the Dodgers being created, and took special care in their signing. The Dodgers departed for Los Angeles following the 1957 season, and Ebbets Field would be demolished in 1960. In an era of sprawling, multi-dimensional ballparks, where the focus often seems to be on everything but the game, this signed photograph recaptures an earlier era, an era when the emotions of an entire borough were felt to rise and fall with the success and failure of the local team. This is a classic and magnificently conceived signed tribute to the Brooklyn Dodgers. In pristine Mint condition. LOAs from Mike Gutierrez/GAI and James Spence & Steve Grad/PSA DNA. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,265.00
