1955 Brooklyn Dodgers Win World Series. Who's A Bum Daily News October 5th 1955 For Sale

Up for sale is the front cover (framed) as well as the sports section of the October 5th, 1955 Daily News. The front cover depicts the image of the "Brooklyn Bum" as drawn byLeo Omealia.
For 65 years the Brooklyn Dodgers lived in the shadow of their more successful neighbors, the New York Yankees. Fans of the Bums, a nickname lovingly bestowed on Brooklyn's ballplayers, suffered World Series losses to the Yanks in 1941, 1947, 1949, 1952, and 1953. 'Wait till next year!' became an annual lament for Dodgers fans. Finally, on October 4, 1955, the seemingly impossible happened: The Dodgers beat the Yankees 2-0 in the seventh game of the World Series. This is the cartoon that adorned the front page of the next day's New York Daily News. It was an extension of the jubilation that pervaded Brooklyn that autumn day. Former Daily News writer Pete Hamill described that day for Brooklyn fans as being 'a combination of the Liberation of Paris, V-J Day, and New Year's Eve as car horns blared, trolley cars ding-dinged their bells, church bells rang, pots were beaten outside fire escape windows, kids and grown-ups leaped with joy and exultation. Next Year! It was true. This was Next Year! The Dodgers beat the script. No: they wrote a new one.'
