This is Gerald Burstein, who departed us, posing in his younger days. He got his permanent nickname – Bummy because of a 1947 World Series bet that he lost. An avid Brooklyn Dodger fan, he made a bet with a classmate that whoever lost the World Series, he would be stuck with a “lifetime” nickname! It was a blessing because no one knows Gerald Burstein, but everyone knows Bummy Burstein.
