I am oftentimes drawn to the unique. So when I first saw the above blueprint I was smitten. Featured above, via Goldin Auctions current summer offering (auction link here), is a circa 1952 seating diagram of Ebbets Field in Brooklyn. In fact, it includes two different drawings, one on each side, showing both the lower and upper tiers of seats.
According to the auction description it was originally found within the collection of a local NY tavern owner who counted many Brooklyn players as patrons, and was acquired by the consignor from a legendary dealer named Alan "Mr. Mint" Rosen. Many of us old-timers will remember that fellow for his grandiose declarations of wealth - kind of like a hobby version of a Donald Trump without the baggage of racist underpinnings and numerous corporate bankruptcies.
This blueprint would look fantastic in a nice frame, and would be even cooler if it were double-sided. That way you could flip it around whenever you wanted a different look on the wall.
