Description



Rocky Bridges witnessed the Shot Heard Round the World, made it to the '52 World Series, earned a spot in the '58 All-Star Game and rivaled Nellie Fox in the tobacco chew department. But Bridges' legacy mainly revolves around being a fun-loving comedian. Some of his best, most hilarious quotes are compiled here. Offered is an 8x10 large-format version of the kind of Jacobellis portraits that we have sold as 4x5 contact proofs. Quite unusually, the setting appears to be dusk, resulting in a beautiful use of light and shadow that was not apparent on the colorized '54 Bowman card version. EX-MT with impeccable image clarity and contrast.
