condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Ebbets Field Flannels
model name / number: New York Knights
Professionally framed and matted a partial uncut sheet of 12 movie prop Roy Hobbs (Robert Redford) baseball cards used in the film The Natural. Also… a New York Knights wool and leather baseball warmup jacket (XXL), also a Roy Hobbs #9 Knights flannel pinstriped home jersey (XL), and a New York Knights fitted wool baseball cap (7 5/8).

I purchased the sheet of cards from a California movie prop liquidator in the 1990’s. At the time it was the largest remaining partial sheet they had seen. Reportedly they were cut up to distribute as individual cards to cast, crew and guests at the premier. I had the framer enclose all of the attached portions of the full card sheet.

There is good info on line to help distinguish the originals from reprints… blank on the back, baby blue ink at the name bar.

The jacket, jersey, and cap are all 1990’s Ebbets Field production (they did not make the uniforms for the film). Fantastic quality. Made in the USA. Current new retail with Ebbets Field gear is about $900 for the three items. I don’t want to sell the items separately.

I can meet part way for a buyer. I obviously loved this movie and loved all of these items. Put the hat on backwards, lean back against the dugout wall and make it rise up like Bobby Savoy. Wear the jacket and feel like Pop Fisher (“I shoulda been a farmer”).

Excellent info here:
