    Description

    1955 Brooklyn Dodgers "Welcome Home" National League Championship Banner. Absolutely magical artifact from the most glorious October in Flatbush history was posted on the exterior wall of the Ebbets Field ballpark as the Bums finally got the better of the Yanks. Even the most casual collectors of baseball memorabilia understand that any piece relating directly to the Bums' season of 1955 carries tremendous value and allure, but few pieces could compare, both in terms of visual appeal and historical significance, to this remarkable canvas banner that bore witness to the miracle. Measuring a regal 32x36" in size, the banner exhibits a degree of staining and weathering one would expect for an artifact such as this, but our catalog imagery should indicate that the overall aesthetics remain strong. Booming text screenprinted in red and blue announces, "Welcome Brooklyn Dodgers, 1955 National League Champions." Fantastic imagery of the Ebbets Field rotunda and the Brooklyn Bridge adds further visual power. Metal grommets at the upper corners allowed for ease of presentation. Lower edge appears trimmed by hand.
