Description

Stamped on the reverse of this 8″ x 10″ photo is the identity Roogie’s Bump, and a little research kindles the memory of a wonderful fantasy film that debuted in 1954. The storyline relates how a young, socially awkward boy, living in Brooklyn, suffered relentless ridicule from his peers. Then, visited in a dream by a ghostly Dodger legend, this Roogie Rigsby mysteriously developed a harmless blemish (‘bump’) on his right arm. The bump was really an undetected harbinger of magical strength as Roogie suddenly had the power to throw a baseball faster than the world had ever known – so fast, and with such precise accuracy, that competition simply wilted at the plate. Appearing in the movie were Billy Loes, Carl Erskine, Russ Meyer and, as we should hope, Roy Campanella. The photo depicts Campanella exchanging pleasantries with the star, Robert Marriott (as “Roogie”) while an unknown Dodger looks on. The photo remains in strong EX/MT condition – however, the central attraction here is its magnificent Roy Campanella autograph. With the salutation, “Best Wishes”, this signing is contemporary to the movie; the Dodger legend penned it (ballpoint?) with utmost responsibility, and it projects at a quality of “10”. This piece comes with James Spence Authentication paperwork.
