--------------Will he be anointed with an starting job with the Dodgers, or will Joc Pederson be stuck behind a cavalcade of veteran outfielders?
With Andrew Friedman just now joining the Dodgers and the winter offseason on the cusp of starting for the entire league, we have plenty of time to find out that answer. In the meantime, it's fair to say that the Joc question will be one of many things we'll be looking forward to having resolved.
As for this auction, they featuring a large collection of game-used Joc Pederson items worthy of any Dodger gameroom. All of these items are from 2013, when he was a member of the AA Chattanooga Lookouts, and are all signed by him. There's a glove, batting gloves and a pair of cleats. Awesome!
This next item is vintage relic. Below is a LA Dodgers 1969 road jersey once worn by former #1 draft pick and eventual journeyman catcher Bob Stinson. He came up through the Dodger farm system after being drafted 15th overall in 1966, and made his Major League debut for the Dodgers in September of 1969. A year later he was traded, along with Ted Sizemore, to the Cardinals for Dick Allen.
There's no doubt that Clayton Kershaw is the top dog on the Dodgers. So, any game-used memorabilia of his will be highly sought after. Featured directly below is his 2010 batting helmet.
Below is Clayton's 2013 postseason game-worn jersey from his very first victory in the playoffs. Via the auction description:
After five starts over three separate post season series, Clayton Kershaw had yet to record a victory. Enter the 2013 National League Division series versus the Atlanta Braves, with Kershaw stepping on the mound for Game 1. He dominated from the start, throwing seven innings, allowing three hits, one run and whiffing 12 batters leading the Dodgers to a 6-1 road victory.
This jersey shows light game use, but comes with the authentic of MLB via their direct game worn item program indicating this is the exact jersey Clayton Kershaw wore during his first ever post season mound victory. MLB AUTHENTIC (EK387863)
