Don Drysdale Collection at SCP - Part V - Some Oddball Stuff

Here's a final look at some of the Don Drysdale items available at SCP Auctions.  Over the past couple of weeks I've written numerous post featuring this collection, and thought I'd wrap things up with a peek at some of the oddball Drysdale collectibles.  Check out my previous write-ups here, here, here, here and here.

Following the 1956 season the Dodgers spent some time in Japan.  Having been invited by Matsutaro Shoriki, the "Father of Japanese Baseball", they played several exhibition games on the island.  Featured below is a Dodger themed kimono.  Each Dodger player in attendance received one, and they are personalized with each players name spelled out on the lapel in Japanese.  (Auction Link Here)  BTW, these games mark the last games played by Jackie Robinson in a Dodger uniform.

This is really cool.  Shown below is a 1990 Dodgers’ 100th anniversary sterling silver season pass.  I've seen these before.  (Auction Link Here)  It says: “Welcome to Dodger Stadium – 100th Anniversary Dodgers 1890 - 1990 – Season 1990 Pass.”

I'd be willing to bet that Don Drysdale was a great bowler.  Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if he'd broken a few pins in his life.  With the kind of fastball he had you know it had to happen.  Featured below is his personal bowling gear.  (Auction Link Here)
