Hunt Auctions: More Dodger Goodies

Hunt's Auction always find a way to please the Dodger collector. Below are a few items that can be found in their most current auction.

Here is a advertising placard featuring Brooklyn Dodger catcher Roy Campanella holding a bottle of Coca Cola. It sure beats the tobacco adds commonly found during this time period. It is a large 12" x 15" and is very beat up. Nevertheless, I think this would look great framed.

Again, another photo of Babe Ruth in a Dodger uniform. The photo on the right shows the Babe wiping his face during a balmy afternoon game.

Yes, they did it again. In 1956 they repeated as NL Champions. Hopefully, we can put on pins like this come September.

This item has me the most intrigued. Below is a very scarce Bruce Edwards Day pin from September 21, 1947 and a modern issue print from that day. What I have not been able to figure out is why he was he given his own special day. He was only in his 2nd Major League season with the Dodgers by this time. Anyone know?
