Above is a commemorative plaque given to Roy Campanella in 1965 for attending the New York Yankees Old-Timers Game at Yankee Stadium.  The plaque reads:
New York Yankees
19th Annual Old Timers Day
Saturday July 31, 1965
Honoring All-Time Award Winners
Roy Campanella, Brooklyn Dodgers
Yankee Stadium Home of Champions.
The below piece is an original artwork by Steve Sax (no, not the former Dodger).  Sax is a Brooklyn born artist who is known in the sports world for his modern folk-art inspired artwork.  Below is a piece featuring Duke Snider grabbing a ball in front of the famed "Abe Stark" outfield sign at Ebbets Field.
