For Brooklyn Dodgers fans, their street of dreams was the corner of McKeever Place and Montgomery Street... the crossroads outside the baseball cathedral known as Ebbets Field. Just one look at this museum-quality sign and one can imagine fans congregating underneath with tickets in hand underneath a blazing summer sun. The porcelain sign, with the same displays on both sides, is set inside a cast iron casing and measures 24.75" x 13". It shows some weathering from having been outside but will display brilliantly. Ebbets Field opened on April 9, 1913 and closed its doors for the final time on September 24, 1957 as the team headed out west to Los Angeles, breaking millions of hearts in the process. The Dodgers won one World Series during their decades in Flatbush, topping the arch-rival Yankees in 1955, setting off wild celebrations across New York's largest borough. This beautiful street sign was part of the backdrop that day and perhaps was in the line of fire of some champagne spray.
