Vintage Brooklyn Dodgers Banner and Dishware at Hunt Auctions

Here are a couple of fun Dodgers memorabilia items that I ran into at Hunt's current internet-only auction. 

Featured above is a 1953 Brooklyn Dodgers National League Champions felt banner (auction link here).  As you can see it includes the entire Dodgers' roster.  It even has the position players named on the infield and their coaches along the baselines.  I do not know if this was a team issued piece or produced secondhand. 

Below is a scarce set of vintage 1952 Brooklyn Dodgers dishware that celebrates their NL pennant that season (auction link here).  Made by Delano Studios it says on the reverse, "With Sincere Appreciation From The Dodgers National League Champions - 1952."  They were originally given away by the team to players, employees and friends of the club.  So they were produced in limited quantities.
