This is just plain awesome!
Featured here is a vintage, circa 1950's, Brooklyn Dodgers "Dodgerettes" fan club sweater available for auction at Grey Flannel Auctions. It has the name of "Marilyn" stitched just above the right-side pocket and is in reasonably good shape considering its age.
I can imagine throngs of lady Dodger fans joining this exclusive club to show their love and support for the "Bums" of Brooklyn.
Unfortunately, I have not been able to get much of any information about this group, so if you happen to know anything please pass your knowledge along. I wonder if this is some sort of booster club, or sanctioned organization created by the ballclub.
What I do know is that a vintage pin exclaiming membership in the group pops up from time to time. Check out a pic of that on the right. It says, "I am a member of the Dodgerette Dodger Fan Club." This pin last sold in 2010 through Inside the Park Collectibles for $138.00.
Below is a close up of the Dodger letterman on the left breast of the sweater.
This is the first time I have ever seen this.
