The $4,500 Ebbets Field Scale Is Amazing! (Pictures and Videos)

Last Saturday I posted this video. {linked here}

I sent a message via YouTube to ask for pictures of this great Ebbets Field Scale.

Luckily, I received the following message. Dan was nice enough to answer my questions.

Hello Robert, 

My Name is Dan, I live in the L.A. area. I made the Ebbets Field. It is Game 3 of the 1955 World Series. The table is poplar wood and it is surrounded by all the Brooklyn Dodgers baseball cards from 1909 to 1954. They are covered with glass. The stadium is made of poplar and balsa woods for the most part. It is scale 1/16 inch to a foot, the 13,000 plus people came from Japan and China. The working stadium lights and brick came from England and Canada. The cars came from all over the world. They are 1940's to early 50's. I would have to say the most difficult thing is all the research. There are not too many real good photos out there, and the lights were really tough as well. This one has offers of $12,000 already. It looks like I will be doing a 1940 Cincinnati Crosley Field, Game 3 World Series next, then 1963 Dodger stadium, and old Pittsburgh Pirates Stadium, Forbes Field, as well. So far, I'm only making one stadium for each era so they are limited edition to 1 of 1. Here are pictures of the scale. 

4 1/2 months, 1,100 hours and $4,500 later....
