eBay: 1950's Era Fan Photos of a Dodger Spring Training

I thought that this particular eBay auction deserved its' own post. It features some incredible photos taken by a fan in the late 1950's. They are black & white and feature some of the greatest Dodgers to ever put on the uniform. Heck, even our red headed broadcaster is featured.I love these kind of photos. They hardly resemble a professional feel, but instead captures the innocence a fan experiences in the stands. In this case, a fan has taken photos at both Vero Beach, Dodgertown, and Ebbetts Field in Brooklyn.

This has been a growing segment of the hobby. Many collectors have chosen to chase after these gems since they are often one-of-a-kind.

Above are photos of Vin Scully, Pee Wee Reese, Sal Maglie and Johnny Podres. Below are Roy Campanella, Duke Snider and Carl Furillo.I had made several bids to win this item, but I grossly underestimated the demand. The group of 7 pics sold for $58.89.
