Odd-Ball Jackie Robinson Collectibles

Here are some affordable Jackie Robinson items that I have in my collection. Below is a jumbo photo postcard celebrating Jackie's tenure as a broadcaster with WNBC. This postcard is not especially rare and can be purchased for as little as $10.00.
Here are 2 covers from Quick magazine featuring Jackie Robinson. Magazine covers is a great way to collect your favorite player in some fantastic poses without spending an arm and a leg to do it. Some magazines from this era are tough to find in good condition, but with enough patience you can pick them up for $10.00 to $15.00 a piece.

Spring Training Redux

During lunch today I decided to scan my pride and joy from my Spring Training vacation this March. Above is the 2007 Spring Training program filled with 25 current and former Dodger signatures on the cover. I would like to thank the following for signing my yearbook: Sweet Lou Johnson, Charlie Steiner, Loney, Repko, Yeager, Seanez, Bill Mueller, Tomko, Tony Kinkela (he's the Dodgers On-Demand Broadcaster), Steve Lyons, Lieberthal, LaRoche, Jauss, Kemp, Kent, Broxton, Wolf, Saito, Hamulack, Billingsley, Rob Flippo, Bigbie, Grady Little, Pierre and Russell Martin.

OT: YouTube Video

The Japanese have great game shows. Below is a video clip from the show "Gaki no tsukai ya arahende." It is set within a library as contestants are subjected to some childish torture. The hitch is that you must be quiet the whole time. Good times. This is some pretty funny stuff.
