Metal badge issued to an employee at Ebbets Field. This is one of the rarest Brooklyn Dodgers/Ebbets Field artifacts we have ever handled and the first example we have seen. The circular badge is numbered “151” in the center, with the lettering around the perimeter reading “Ebbets Field Employee.” Manufactured by “N. G. Walter & Sons” of New York, as noted on the reverse. The badge (2 inches in diameter) displays wear commensurate with its age and former use, including chipping to the green paint in the center and light scratches. In Very Good to Excellent condition overall.
