1961 Union Oil Dodger Family Booklets - Vin Scully and Jerry Doggett


I just made an exciting (at least to me) acquisition to my collection, and I am happy to share it with all of you.  Featured above is a complete set of 24 - 1961 Union Oil Dodger Family booklets.

These little (5 1/2" 7 1/2") booklets were handed out at local Union Oil gas stations throughout the Southland.  A new book was release each week during the season.  They provide a biography of the players featured, as well as, tips about playing ball.  Pages are black & white, and are highlighted with red graphics.

Since it's likely that most of you have never seen them, I will scan every page of each booklet and post it up here for you to enjoy.  Stay tuned, I'll feature a different booklet every other day, or so.

To start, I figured I would begin with the best booklet of all.  Check out complete scans of the Vin Scully / Jerry Doggett booklet below.  Click any pic to embiggen.

  1. Spectacular. The Dodgers and 76 stations were linked indelibly for all eight-year-old baseball fans, and when Dad or Mom pulled into a bay in the summer, the world was our oyster.
