WRIGLEY FIELD BASEBALL (ca. 1951) Trolley car poster by Otis Shepard
Los Angeles: Wrigley Company, [ca. 1951]. Vintage original 11 x 28″ (28 x 71 cm.) trolley car poster. Unfolded, with minor signs of handling (slight edge wear, light creases, unobtrusive smudges and a thin scratch at the top), none of them particularly noticeable. This genuinely rare poster is overall in really nice condition, near fine.
This poster was created by Otis Shepard, art director for the Wrigley Company. This was part of a series of posters he created for Wrigley focusing on sports and leisure. Wrigley Field was built in south Los Angeles in 1925 and housed the minor league Los Angeles Angels, until 1957. After the Dodgers arrived, the field remained in use for another decade, until demolition in 1969
