The Don Drysdale Estate Collection is Coming to Auction in April

Several months back I was told by the folks at SCP Auctions that Dodgers collectors should expect to see something fantastic soon.  When I queried excitedly, they said the Don Drysdale Collection is coming.

I was shocked.


"Holy Moly," I exclaimed.

Next to the Kirk Gibson collection SCP sold several years back, this might be the greatest hoard of player memorabilia from a former Dodger player to come to the market in well over a decade.  Based on a handful of preview images provided so far, it looks like it'll include many of his best items.  Below is a small dose of what you should expect to see in a couple of months.
  • Don Drysdale's 1956 Brooklyn Dodgers Game Worn Home Uniform from His Rookie Season
  • Don Drysdale's 1965 Los Angeles Dodgers World Championship 14k Gold Ring
  • Don Drysdale's 1963 Los Angeles Dodgers World Championship 14k Gold Ring
  • Don Drysdale's 1956 Brooklyn Dodgers National League Championship 10k Gold Ring
  • Don Drysdale's 1962 Major League Baseball Cy Young Award
  • Don Drysdale's 1984 National Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Presentation Plaque
  • Don Drysdale's 1968 Game Used Baseball from Final Inning of Record 58 2/3 Scoreless Innings Streak

The last item above is just breathtaking.  It's the actual Baseball from when Drysdale set the consecutive innings pitched record.  Frankly, this needs to be in a museum.

Other items to be for sale include game-used equipment, his 1988 Dodgers World Series ring, his 1955 Montreal Royals International League Championship ring, trophies and a ton of uniforms.  No doubt, this promises to be epic.
