A Vin Scully Memorabilia Checklist - Records, Magazine Covers and Stadium Giveaways

I decided to spend a little bit of time trying to catalog all the different Vin Scully memorabilia items that exist out there.

As you may know, a few years back I attempted to do this with his various Baseball cards, postcards and Union 76 giveaways (see that original post here), but always felt is was incomplete.  After all, there is a bunch of other stuff I neglected to include; such as his records, magazines and Dodger Stadium giveaways.  Hopefully, the below listing takes care of that.  Unfortunately, I doubt this is entirely complete.  For instance, there's got to be more magazine covers featuring the Hall of Fame broadcaster than what I have shown here.  If you happen to know of other items please let me know. 

Furthermore, I am planning an additional post focused solely on the 1966 Union 76 twelve-record 33 1/3 RPM set featuring Vin Scully interviews with 24 different players and team executives.  I made mention of it in my post a few years back. but didn't provide a lot of details back then.

So, without further adieu, here is a listing of Vin Scully related records, magazine covers and stadium giveaways.  I will, of course, updated this post when new items come to my attention.

UPDATE:  I have just been told of another Vin Scully collectible recently made by the Dodgers to commemorate his retirement (Thanks, CJ).  It is an oversized postcard and appears to have been made for this last homestand.  See it below.

UPDATE II:  I have just been made aware of another Scully memorabilia item from Vin Scully Weekend.  Featured below is a pin made by the Dodgers, and from what I understand they were given to numerous Dodger employees, MLB employees and other broadcasters.  I do not know how many were made and distributed.  

UPDATE III:  Here is a new item for the checklist.  On Vin's very last broadcast, at San Francisco, October 2, 2016, the Giants gave to every fan in attendance the below "Cheer Card."
