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.
UPDATE: Go here to check out scans of every booklet in this set.
