1947 Brooklyn Bum Original Artwork by Willard Mullin

1947 Brooklyn Bum Original Artwork by Willard Mullin

This pencil drawing by the king of sports cartoons, Willard Mullin, is quite detailed and dedicated at the bottom to longtime Chicago Cubs broadcaster Jack Brickhouse. The theme is the end of the 1947 Dodgers' 13 game winning streak. Pencil was an odd medium for Mullin as most of his work was done in pen and ink. The framed piece measures roughly 14" x 19" and is slightly tattered around the edges. Not only did the Cubs stop the Dodgers' win streak at 13 on August 1 of that year, Chicago swept the three-game set at Wrigley Field. Brooklyn would have the last laugh, however, winning the pennant a month later while the Cubs finished second with a record of 69-85.
