This vintage sports wall art piece is called the Brooklyn Dodgers of the 1950’s. It features the 4 Hall of Fame players on the 1955 World Series Championship team.
In 1955, the Brooklyn Dodgers finally fulfilled the promise of many previous Dodger teams – they finally beat their cross-town rivals the New York Yankees. It was the Dodgers first and only World Series championship won while located in Brooklyn.
This season was basically a culmination of the careers of many legendary Dodger players – especially the 4 Hall of Fame players on that team. Catcher Roy Campanella won the 1955 National League Most Valuable Player award, his third in five years. Center fielder Duke Snider led the league in runs batted in and was second in the MVP voting. Jackie Robinson and Pee Wee Reese, both 36 years old, proved they could still play at a high level.
