SCP Auctions: The 1965 Dodgers and Roy Campanella

SCP auctions has just opened up their preview for their most recent auction, and it includes a couple of great Dodgers memorabilia items.  Check them out below.

Here is a framed memorabilia hoard that celebrates the 1965 World Champion Dodgers.  It includes an original program, a world series ticket, parking pass and first day covers.  There are nearly 3 dozen autographs of the team.  One thing to note though, both the Koufax and Scully autos have been deemed fakes.

I really love the piece below.  I love the artwork, and the fact that it was presented to Roy Campanella by the Boy Scouts makes it extra special. 

I loved being a scout as a kid.  It was fun hanging out with my classmates while having the opportunity to go camping. 

Below is an Achievement Award presented by the Boy Scouts of America Los Angeles Council to Roy Campanella for "courage and determination to handicapped youngsters.."  This plaque is in incredible condition.

Dodgers Blog Kiosk: 10/2/2012



That was one heck of a celebration last night.  Elian Herrera get a walk-off hit, and the Dodgers just about strip him naked.  pic above from the Dodgers on twitter.  The pic below (also from twitter) is of his team destroyed jersey.

  • Check out Jon Weisman at LA Magazine's CityThink blog "Dodger Thoughts: One Day More."
  • Sons of Steve Garvey shares some great aerial views of Dodger Stadium.
  • Who better to put together a list of the 100 top Dodgers cards than Night Owl Cards.  Check out card #100 to #91.
  • Night Owl Cards also took a look at the checklist for the Topps Update set that will be released on Wednesday and makes note that there are 14 Dodger cards listed.  As I noted previously, AJ Ellis finally gets his own card.  Yeah!!  I'll pics of every Dodger card in the set later on this week.
  • Here's a great article in Reuters about LA billionaire Patrick Soon-Shiong and his desire to buy AEG and the LA area teams owned by them (Kings, Galaxy and part of Lakers) so as to promote healthy living.
  • Take a look at the recently engraved Stanley Cup, via Kings News Daily on twitter.  I've got a date with her on Wednesday, and I'll be sure to share some photos.

eBay: Matt Kemp 2008 Upper Deck SP By the Letter Autographed Jersey Patches


This is a great collection.  Here is an eBay auction I ran into recently that features a master set of 2008 Upper Deck SP "By the Letter Autographed Jersey Patches" of Matt Kemp.  Each card has a manufactured patch of a letter and a Matt Kemp autograph. As you can see above, when you have collected them all you can spell "Matt Kemp LA Dodgers".  I imagine not too many complete master sets exist.  Heck, this might be the only completed version out there.

Stayin' Alive!

These have been some heroic games lately.  With a little bit of luck we just might be able to pull this one out.  Hopefully, the Reds can do us a solid and take out the red birds.

In celebration of last nights walk-off win I bring to you an very appropriate song.  You know you love the Bee Gees.
