  1. I am smiling because my father, Charles Keiger, painted this sign. He worked for Sam Caldwell after completing five years at the Cincinnati Art Academy in 1952. I don’t know how old this sign is now, but as far as I know it’s his last remaining wall in Cincinnati. He used to do all the signs at Crosley Field. Find a historical photo from the 1961 Reds-Yankees World Series, and those signs on the Crosley scoreboard and outfield wall are his.
