"Ebbets Field, A Memoir" was written by former Brooklyn Dodgers' Director of Promotions Irving Rudd. It was sold as a companion piece along with a lithograph of Ebbets Field by artist John Suchy. The items sold very well in the mid 1980's. The booklets were autographed at some of the annual inductions of former Dodgers and their outstanding opponents into the Brooklyn Dodgers Hall of Fame. While some of the lithographs are still available, there are very few of the Irving Rudd memoir in stock. Some of the autographs on the booklet covers are those of Stan Musial, Duke Snider, Dolph Camilli, Babe Herman, Tommy Holmes, Ralph Branca, Bobby Thomson, Mickey Owen, Tommy Henrich, Al Gionfrido and Johnny Vander Meer. The Ebbets Field memoir and the Ebbets Field lithograph are prized possessions of many collectors of Brooklyn Dodgers memorabilia.
