Original Topps Artwork of Duke Snider's 1959 Thrilling Catch Card at REA

Many Dodger collectors know the above card well.  It is a 1959 Topps #468 card of Duke Snider making a leaping catch in centerfield.  It is titled, "Snider's Play Brings LA Victory," and it features a three-panel drawing of the Duke of Flatbush.

I don't believe the card represents a specific play or game.  But I do know that there is an original painting of it, and it is available for sale in REA's current Fall auction.  Check it out here.

It measures 4.75" x 3" and is the original flexichrome artwork with standard production-related remnants on its blank reverse.

Over the next few day's I'll share more Dodger related items available from REA.
