Hunt: More Dodger Goodies

After a short break, here is my second post featuring Dodger memorabilia in Hunt's upcoming auction.

Here is an unusual item I doubt you'll find in many Dodger collector homes. This is a actual cash register from the Ebbets Field, circa 1940's- 1950's. It has the original paper identification labels and inspection labels stating,
"H.Stevens (Ebbets Field) Brooklyn".

The September 22, 1947 issue of Time Magazine has one of the great cover art drawings ever done of Jackie Robinson. Below are some original drawings done for that issue by Ernest Hamlin Baker.

Below is a LeRoy Neiman serigraph titled "Dodger's Centennial" completed in 1990.

This is a very rare postcard of the 1907 Brooklyn Baseball Club. There are 12 individual player portraits attached in a accordion style fold-out. Unfortunately, the auction does not feature pics of any of them.

Since the original 1955 Championship ring belonging to Jackie Robinson remains in the hands of his family the next best thing is a salesman sample. Besides, these rings are more affordable since they feature cubic zarconia gemstone.
