Lot 587: Ebbets Field "1955 The Year That Was" Original Oil Painting by Robert Stephen Simon
Esteemed artist Robert Stephen Simon pays tribute to the only time the borough of Brooklyn didn't resort to their famous "Wait Til Next Year!" cry as the beloved Dodgers upended the crosstown rival Yankees to claim their only World Championship before departing for LA. This 37.5x27" painting shows Ebbets Field in all its summer glory and brings to life a simpler time when baseball had just 16 teams... three of which were based in New York City.
