Below is a pinback you just don't see very often. Here is a circa 1940's-50's Montreal Royals pin (designated PM10) complete with ribbons and a white celluloid ball charm. As you know, the Royals were the Brooklyn Dodgers main farm club and the place where Jackie Robinson got his start within the Dodger franchise.
Speaking of Jackie Robinson, below is a vintage press photo, circa 1945, of him in a Kansas City Monarchs uniform. This is an original Sporting News photograph.
The below grouping of vintage photographs is absolutely incredible, and I would do almost anything to have a chance to get a closer look at them all. This auction item includes 50 different 5"x7" original Brooklyn Superbas photographs from ”Spooner & Wells, Inc. Photographers” out of New York City. They date from 1908 to 1910 and feature some great background shots of old stadiums; including the Dodgers old home at Washington Park II.
Of all the photos they share in the auction listing I most fascinated with two photos showing a haphazardly-looking wooden fence in the background shown directly below. Where could those photos possibly have been taken? I would really love to know.
