Some Vintage 1955 Color Brooklyn Dodger Photographs

As you know, from time to time I feature Dodgers memorabilia that I run into on eBay.  Oftentimes, I see a unique memorabilia item I had yet to discuss here.  Other times, like today, I share with you some great fan taken photographs from yesteryear.  Featured below are some incredible 1955 color photographs originally taken by the seller at Ebbets Field during the 1st game of a double-header between the Dodgers and Pittsburgh Pirates.  The seller is selling individual prints (from the original negatives), and I suggest taking a look if you're looking to spice up your wall.  Go here to see more photos.  Below, I show only 3 of of 12 different photos the seller has.

This might be one of the better photographs.  Below is the aftermath of a Roy Campanella home run.
