Auto Collection: Johnny Podres 2004 UD Ultimate Game Materials

Johnny Podres was the hero of Brooklyn. His arm turned the "Bums" into champions. He will always be remembered for his World Series exploits in 1955.

Here is my 2004 Upper Deck Ultimate Game Materials card that features both an autograph and a small piece of a game-used uniform worn by the hurler. It's not a very pretty card, especially that busy looking sticker with the autograph, but you really can't go wrong with having a card from this Dodger legend.

Hunt Auction: Dodger Memorabilia

Hunt Auctions is currently running their 7th Annual auction at the Louiseville Slugger Museum and Factory. There is a whole bunch of different items in it; including Work Out Day/ Home Run Derby used and signed 2010 All-Star jerseys from Broxton, Kuo, Furcal and Ethier. Below are a couple of other Dodger related memorabilia items.

Here are a couple of vintage, circa 1960's, Los Angeles Dodger neck tie and bolo style bow tie.

This is probably one of the more unique Dodger related World Series items you'll ever see. This champagne bottle is purported to be from the Dodger celebration of the 1965 World Series. It comes directly from a former Dodger clubhouse employee.
