eBay: 1956 Dodgers Tour of Japan Memorabilia


I haven't posted anything featuring Dodgers memorabilia on eBay in awhile, so I thought I would start off with a couple of great 1956 Dodgers Tour of Japan collectibles. 

While stumbling around on eBay I ran into this original copy of Baseball Magazine from November 20, 1956.  It features on its cover Tetsuharu Kawakami shaking hands with Roy Campanella.  The Dodgers where on a whirlwind world tour after the 1956 season, and this magazine captures their exploits during their visit to Japan.

Check out some of the great photos within it below.  Go to the auction listing here.

Also on auction is this vintage ticket stub to an exhibition game between the Dodgers and some Japanese All-Stars.  It is from a November 10, 1956 ballgame at Korakuen Stadium in Japan.  The Dodgers won this match 8 to 2, both Gil Hodges and Don Zimmer hit home runs, and Carl Erskine won the game.  See the auction here.
