The scene on this 20x16 sepia-toned print is a familiar one: the Dodgers and Yankees in World Series action at Ebbets Field. What’s not of the norm, however, is the beloved “Bums” taking the upper hand. That’s precisely what is portrayed on this 1955 World Series photo as Pee Wee Reese is shown trotting to first base after coaxing a bases-loaded walk from Yankees reliever Tom Morgan to give the hosts a 4-2 lead in the bottom of the second in Game 3. The triumph propelled the Dodgers to their first-ever title. Appropriately, (48) Brooklyn staples have signed the piece. Executed in blue Sharpie against the stark white background of the Flatbush sky, the pennings average (“9-10”) potency and include: Basinski, Borkowski, Bragan, Chandler, Cimoli, Cisar, Coscarart, Craig, Dapper, Erskine, Fernandez, Franks, Gentile, Gionfriddo, Harris, Hermanski, Holmes, Jackson, Jorgensen, Kennedy, King, Kipp, Labine, Lehman, Loes, Lund, Mauro, McDevitt, McLish, Miller, Minner, Nahem, Olmo, Pafko, Pfund, Pignatano, Podres, Ramazzotti, Reese, Roe, Schultz, Snider, Stevens, Sukeforth, Taylor, J. Van Cuyk, White and Whitman. Full photo LOA from JSA.
