1954 New York Giants Panoramic Photo
Starting Bid - $1,000.00, Sold For - $3,737.50
Extraordinary and pristine large-format panoramic display photograph, measuring an extremely impressive 33 x 7 inches, features the National League Champions standing side by side at The Polo Grounds. Produced by Verna Photo Studios (357 Fifth Ave, Brooklyn, New York), this professional display was most likely produced as a keepsake for players and executives, to commemorate one of the Giants' greatest seasons. It is very rare to find panoramic style baseball photographs dating from the 1950s. While they were very popular from the teens to the 1930s, by the 1950s the traditional panoramic photograph was something of a lost art in the world of baseball photography. This is an incredible photo, with absolutely flawless contrast and clarity, and tremendous detail. The team is identified in white lettering along the base as "National League Champions, 1954 - The New York Giants." One of the few, and finest, baseball panoramic photographs of the era, from the "Year of the Catch" (Willie Mays' immortal catch in Game One of the 1954 World Series). Beautifully and very expensively matted and framed to measure 16 x 41.5 inches. Nr/Mt to Mint condition. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$4,000. SOLD FOR $3,737.50
