If you are looking at this image you will immediately recognize it as the exact image used to make card #76 in the 1953 Topps Baseball Card set, which in our humble opinion represents some of the nicest looking cards ever made. Topps took some artistic license by adding some billboards. The original image being offered here is even more breathtaking. Simple composition of the Brooklyn star results in an instantly recognizable and warm image of the beloved Dodger, the original photo was taken in 1951 due to the patch on Reese's left sleeve. Great condition, with the signature on the front being secretarial for publication but the photo itself is the star here and this is one of his best!
