Legendary Pics- Part 2

Here is my second follow up to my recent post featuring Dodger pics from Legendary Auctions current photo auction. There are so many great photos, I couldn't keep it to just one post. Check them out below.

The Ebbets Field facade in color.

Baseball pioneer Branch Rickey with Jackie Robinson.

Here is Jackie in a very familiar football pose.

I think this is one of the better photos in the auction. The Brooklyn Bums took ten straight. They Dood it!

I recognize Jackie Robinson, Joe Black, Duke Snider, Gil Hodges and Walter Alston, but who is the guy in the middle with the giant smile?

Here is a great shot of Ted Williams joking around with Roy Campanella and Duke Snider.

We are only missing the Giant.

This photo is hilarious. Gil Hodges lifts a couple boxes of Wheaties while donning those shiny satin Dodger uniforms from 1948.

Gil Hodges is framed just right.

  1. My guess on the guy in the middle of that one photo is Rube Walker. It looks like him and there is catcher's equipment around.

    It also kind of looks like Zimmer, but I think it's Walker.

  2. Is the guy in the middle Preacher Roe?

  3. I guess it depends on when the photo was taken. The Dodgers won 10 straight games in both 1954 and 1955 (Alston's first two seasons). Roe did not pitch with the Dodgers in 1955. Zimmer and Walker played for both teams.

    In the 10th win in 1954, Roe was the starting pitcher.

  4. It looks like either Zimmer or Roe to me, but I only base that off of these quick Google image searches.

    Zimmer:
