This familiar piece is a classic from the era: a 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers Schaefer Beer Advertising Display. The self-framed 1950s cardboard advertising piece with easel-stand reverse features a die-cut team picture of the World Champion 1955 Brooklyn Dodgers. The uniquely designed display is composed of three individual photos of players (each representing a different row), with players die-cut, and with each row spaced so as to create a three dimensional effect. The elaborate design of this fragile cardboard display piece makes it extremely susceptible to damage and it is rarely, if ever, found in anything even approaching Mint condition. This example is no exception, and although it is not Mint, it is one of the finer examples we have handled. There are a few repairs to small tears along the corners and edges of the "frame" and minor creases at the necks of three of the players. Two Velcro tabs have been affixed to the reverse from a previous mounting. Those minor flaws notwithstanding, the piece remains in spectacular Excellent to Mint condition and one would be hard pressed to find a more attractive example. Dimensions: 20.75 x 14.5 inches. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000.
