eBay: 1958 1st Annual Dodger Dinner

The Dodgers have just come into town, and they want to make a good impression during their first season in Los Angeles. So, they hold their first annual Dodger dinner with the folks from the Baseball Writers Association of America, Los Angeles chapter. After all, it's always a good idea to get on the good side of the press. It is held during the first week of the season in Los Angeles, presumably after their road game that Thursday afternoon in San Francisco at Seals Stadium against the Giants, and as a memento to the occasion you pick up a couple of things to put away for safe keeping.

Well, the items above come from that dinner, and was held for safe keeping within the personal collection of former Dodger pilot and O'Malley confidant Robert Chew. Included here was a 18" pennant announcing the affair, a souvenir ticket from the dinner and a program. It sold for a very healthy $214.50.
