It was the culmination of an impossible dream for a generation of Brooklyn sports fans. After decades of frustration at the hands of the hated New York Yankees, "Dem Bums" finally broke through in 1955, prevailing in Game 7 to finally win their first World Series! This amazing poster celebrates the glory of '55 in Flatbush with legendary nostalgia and style. The top half of the poster features the official full-color team photograph of the 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers, with the entire roster and staff looking great in their classic flannels at old Ebbets Field. The bottom half features the title "The Brooklyn Dodgers, 1955 World Champions", a listing of all personnel in the picture, and a full reprint of Marianne Moore's celebratory 1956 poem, "Hometown Piece for Messrs. Alston and Reese". For any fan of the golden era of Major League Baseball, this rare poster is for you - perfect for a nice frame and a prominent place on the wall of home or office!
