Some Dodgers Memorabilia at Heritage Auction

Here is another vintage sports auction from Heritage Auctions, and it includes several fantastic Dodger memorabilia items.  My favorite might be the above 1957 Brooklyn game-used road jersey of Pee Wee Reese.  (Auction Link)  This is from the Dodgers last year at Ebbets Field.

This will soon be a daily activity at Camelback Ranch.  Featured above is a vintage UPI press photo of veteran reliever Roger Craig (yes, the former Giants manager) getting some work inside a batting cage at Vero Beach, dated February 23, 1961 (eBay Auction Link).  Per the descriptor on the reverse:
Roger Craig of the Los Angeles Dodgers lays down a bunt during batting practice at Dodgertown in Vero Beach, Fla.  Keeping a watchful eye on the batters is Leo Durocher, standing behind the batting cage.
Can you already imagine the sight, sounds and smell of the game?  I can, and I couldn't be more happier.  Below are more links to check out:
