Lelands: Some Dodger Goodies

The current Lelands Fall Auction is very impressive. It not only includes a bunch of great vintage Baseball memorabilia items, but also has some great Dodgers stuff. I've highlighted some of them below, but it is far from everything Dodger related. In fact, their auction includes another installment of Dodger paraphernalia from the collection of Sal LaRocca. Sal's collection is absolutely incredible. The below Dodger items are not a part of Sal's collection, but don't worry I'm not neglecting them. I will follow up this post with additional stories of those items over the next several days. For now, salivate over these three pieces.

Satin! Satin! Satin! This is a 1945 Brooklyn Dodger satin jersey once worn by Art Herring.

I'm not familiar with this pin at all. It is a advertising celluloid pin featuring Sandy Koufax for a company called American Male. I believe that are an apparel manufacturer. It measures 3" in diameter.

This item is a real treat. Here is a 1956 Tour of Japan kimono robe once belonging to Gil Hodges. It was presented to him and other players during their goodwill tour one year after their first World Championship. This is definitely museum worthy.
