Oversized Ebbets Field print (16 x 20") Signed by over 70 former Brooklyn Dodgers. This gorgeous rendition of Ebbets Field by renowned gold medal winning illustrator and distinguished scholar of the arts, Murray Tinkelman, has been personally signed by more than 70 former members of the Brooklyn Dodgers Baseball Club as well as the artist himself. Roughly 60 of these individuals have since passed on, leaving just 13 still living today.
All signatures were obtained in the 1990's, and were penned using either a fine point, or a standard Blue Sharpie Felt-tip Ink Pen. The overwhelming majority appear to be of 9/10 caliber or better.
Featured names include: Joe Black (1952 R.O.Y.), Ralph Branca, Dolph Camilli (1941 N.L. MVP), Al Campanis, Roger Craig, Rod Dedeaux, Carl Erskine, Gene Hermanski, Sandy Koufax (HOF), Gene Mauch, Don Newcombe (’49 N.L. ROY, ’56 NL MVP, ’56 Cy Young) Mickey Owen, Andy Pafko, Johnny Podres (’55 World Series MVP), Pee-Wee Reese (HOF), Bill Sharman* (2 x NBA H.O.F.) , “Edwin” Duke Snider (HOF), Eddie Stanky, Dick Williams (HOF) and Don Zimmer.

All signatures were provided in person by the names I have listed above. I provide a 110% guarantee that all signatures are authentic. This piece will be accompanied by my personal TOP DOG C.O.A., which complies with The State of California's new legislation regarding the sale of Autographed Memorabilia. (Assembly Bill #1570). My COA includes all of the required information to make it stand up as a legal document in a court of law. An image of the Brooklyn Dodgers Print signed by over 70 former members as well as illustrator Murray Tinkelman will be included as part of the COA. I purchased said item with the knowledge that it had already been reviewed by the professionals at both PSA/DNA and SGC Authentic, and was guaranteed to pass if submitted for their "Full 4-Step Upgrade". These claims cannot be transferred to anyone, and only apply to the original owner (Myself). Their lawyers draw up the disclaimer so that if I (original owner) transfer the piece to a secondary owner, (You, buyer), that new owner (You) would have to re-certify the piece at your own expense, as the original certification is not transferable. It is for this reason that I will take-on all responsibility regarding the authenticity of this item, and with the understanding that as a California Seller I am responsible for the claims I have made. Should a California Court determine that the buyer has been harmed by false claims made in this item’s description, and more specifically: "All signatures signed in person and are guaranteed authentic", shall be awarded damages of up to 10 x the original purchase price + Shipping, plus court costs as well as additional penalties and fees should it be deemed that I mislead you or intentionally made false claims regarding the authenticity of this item. Item in question (Oversized Ebbets Field 16x20” Signed by over 70 Brooklyn Dodgers & Artist Murray Tinkelman) would need to be submitted to either PSA/DNA or JSA and receive documentation and a receipt of their full 4-step Authentication Process specifically showing evidence that the said signatures are not in fact authentic. Should this ever actually happen, Seller would ask for buyer to submit your TOPDOG COA, along with all original documentation from the findings of either PSA/DNA or JSA, along with the return of original item purchased in the condition received. This guarantee is good for life. The life of the item, your life or my life. I stand by my word, as I have worked for 35 years to build my reputation, and would never intentionally lie about any items I have made available for sale.
