Of note, former Dodger catcher and White Sox manager Jeff Torborg has over 80 items available for auction; including several Dodger related goodies. I will feature those items in a post tomorrow. For now, take a look at some other notable Dodgers related memorabilia items that struck my fancy below.
How often do you see something like this? Here is a circa 1950's Brookyn Dodger ushers shirt. It is long sleeved, in Dodger blue and has the Dodgers name embroidered on the back.
The cap below is purported to have once belonged to Jackie Robinson. It comes from a former Dodger farmhand named Fred Woelfle who joined the organization in 1951. Per the auction description:
In 1951 he assisted the team in batting practice acting primarily as a catcher. For these efforts, naturally, he required a uniform which was furnished by the team. One day while dressing he realized he had not been given a hat and asked for one from the trainer who "went to a basket full of dirty uniforms and, after asking me my size, threw me a hat and said here use this one, Robinson won't mind."Wow! That's a great story.
This last item originally came from the family of Roy Campanella. Below is Campy's Hall of Fame Induction ring from 1969.
