These 1 1/4" x 2 3/4" little stickers were inserted into packs of 1963 Topps regular issue baseball cards.
#NNO - 1963 LA Dodgers Pin Ups - Blank Back
This is one of the oddest items you'll ever see. They measure 8.5" x 10.5" and have a design reminiscent of the 1938 Goudey Heads-Up cards. The object of this card is to cut out the players (they are perforated), take a piece of string and attach to the head, and hang them on the ceiling. It's like a grown-up version of a baby crib hanging mobile. They were sold as a complete set exclusively at Dodger Stadium souvenir stands.

I have never seen this before, but figure it was probably sold along with the above patch at Dodger Stadium. On a side note, there must be other Koufax Fan Club items out there, so if you know of something else please let me know (and pass along a pic).

#P15248 - 1964 Tropicana Motor Hotel Postcard
Yes, Sandy Koufax was once the proud owner of the famous Tropicana Motor Hotel on Santa Monica Boulevard in Hollywood. It was once an rockin' establishment known for housing such luminaries as Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Johnny Cash, and more. Check out my past story about the place here. Below are the only two postcards I know of from the establishment while he was the owner, but there may be more.
