BROOKLYN - The Brooklyn Dodgers and Ebbets Field will resurface today in the form of classic postcards in Manhattan.

The unique historical presentation is being offered at The New Yorker Hotel on West 34th Street.

The event is part of the International Postcard Show & Sale being sponsored by the Metropolitan Postcard Club of New York City from May 17 through May 19.

A keynote presentation will take place May 18, featuring Ronald Schweiger, Brooklyn's official historian, who will trace the colorful history of "The Bums" and Ebbets Field through the postcards.

"These postcards are history that is brought alive," said Schweiger, who has devoted a portion of his home's basement to an impressive collection of Brooklyn Dodger memorabilia, some of which he'll bring to the postcard show.
