”The Boys of Summer” shine on in this nostalgic collection of 1950s official news service wire photos. Featuring a pleasing array of beloved Brooklyn Dodgers heroes, this fun and exciting group takes the field in average (VG) condition. Though affected on the reverse by minimal to moderate degrees of paper/adhesive residue, these iconic images report in appealing condition, well suited for framed display with deference to one with very minor obverse surface loss as noted below.
(7) Of these prized photos measure 8x10 with: 1.) Roy Campanella holding one of his three NL MVP awards; 2.) “Pee Wee” Reese making a force play at second base (minor surface loss near top border); 3.) Reese and NY Giants star Alvin Dark posing with crossed bats; 4.) Reese making another play at second; 5.) Andy Pafko leaping for the ball at the fence; 6.) “Rube” Walker sliding safe into second base with the Giants Eddie Stanky trying to make the tag; 7.) Dodgers and Giants player gathered around Gil Hodges after he was spiked by Monte Irvin
The eighth photo measures 14x11 and shows Dodgers first sacker Gil Hodges in a series of four in action scenes (this photo has two vertical folds along the separation lines between the images)
