Some Dodgers Memorabilia at Goldin Auctions - A 1988 World Series Trophy

As you surely know, the start of the Baseball season also marks the beginning of the Baseball auction season.  Along with SCP's current spring offering (that's I've been highlighting of late), Goldin also has their own auction filled with some great Dodgers goodies.  Check out my favorites below.

Although the above 3-D mixed media piece celebrates an historic Baseball moment I'd rather not talk about, I do appreciate its artistry.  Featured in the photos directly above and below is an incredibly detailed item that highlights the "Shot Heard 'Round the World."   As you know, this is from an early-October game between the NY Giants and Brooklyn Dodgers in 1951.  It was a winner-take-all match to determine the pennant winner.  Unfortunately, the Dodgers would lose on an walk-off homer by Bobby Thompson against Ralph Branca.  The piece was created by Dianne Brunner, and has been signed by Thompson on the reverse.

Have you ever wanted a 1988 LA Dodgers World Series Championship trophy?

Well, now you can.  Featured below is a 1988 trophy that belonged to longtime Dodger visiting clubhouse manager/attendant Jim Muhe.  He worked for the Dodgers from 1960 to 1990.
