Directly from the family estate collection of Barney Stein comes this large-format 11" by 14" original photograph of New York Yankees skipper Casey Stengel and Jackie Robinson of the Brooklyn Dodgers walking to their respective locker rooms after a Game 5 of the 1953 World Series at Ebbets Field. The Yankees had just defeated the Dodgers, 11-7, and would close out the series in the Bronx the next day. A timely shot showing the intensity of the high-stakes matchup between the crosstown rivals. (Getty 514970074 shows similar image from the same scene.)

The crystal-clear black and white image was printed off the original negative from the famous Dodgers photographer's camera many years later. It has been professionally framed with white matting inside a thick wooden border (made of ash like most baseball bats). This exact framed photo was on display as part of the Barney Stein Photo Collection exhibit in 2001 at the Frick Art and Historical Museum in Pittsburgh, PA. (Certificate from this exhibit included on reverse side.)

DATE: October 4, 1953
