Clean 1950 photo by Barney Stein, the handwritten caption reading "A sad group of Dodgers walking down runway at Ebbets Field after losing game and pennant to Philadelphia on last day of season in 1950.  L to R - Wayne Labardi (should be Belardi) - Jackie Robinson - Carl Furillo  Rear - Chris Van Cuyk & Gil Hodges."

The 10" x 8" photo does indeed picture a group of sad-looking Dodgers, an enlightening look at the expressions of men who worked hard for a full season and came up just a bit short.  The photo boasts a strong image, with editorial markings in the borders.  A tiny tear at the lower-right corner appears to have been exacerbated by the encapsulation process, the small corner hanging by a thread, but thankfully not damaging the photo itself.  Some mild staining is visible on the reverse, along with some handwriting.  Authenticated as Type 1 and encapsulated by PSA/DNA.
