Hi Lambchop! -- Vintage Signed Dodgers Get Well Card

This is the kind of thing that would surely cheer up any Dodger fan.

Heck, after last nights debacle in the ninth inning we all need a little cheering up.

Featured here is a vintage, circa 1950's, get well greeting card that includes signatures of several well known Brooklyn Dodger players. (auction link) It is certified to have real autographs of Jackie Robinson and Roy Campanella on the inside, but the rest of them are considered clubhouse signatures. In other words, they were signed by the ever-popular and longtime Dodgers batboy, Charlie "The Brow" DiGiovanna -- which is pretty cool in itself.

It just closed and sold for $1,041.25.

Blog Kiosk: 6/29/2017 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

You gotta admit, last nights game was incredible. Sure, the Dodgers ended up on the short end of the stick, but that's okay. Next time we'll be the folks that are laughing. Per Maria Guardado and Joshua Thornton at
"Speed kills. That's the game of a baseball, and that's what happened tonight." -- Revere
"We haven't lost games like that. Unfortunately, things like that are going to happen. The kid, Meyer, competed. Really couldn't put anything together. That's a tough way to lose." -- Roberts
I would say that that was a fun way to lose. Last night was just a case of "Baseball being Baseball". BTW, Pantone 294 once again made their presence known in another stadium. This time they took over Angels Stadium, as evidenced by the photo on the right by Jon SooHoo.

  • This Day in Dodgers History: In 1990 Fernando Valenzuela no-hit the Cardinals, 6-0, at Dodger Stadium.  With 119 pitches he struck out seven and walked three.  Also, on this same night, former Dodgers starter Dave Stewart threw a no-hitter against the Blue Jays; thereby marking the first time in modern Baseball history that two no-hitters were thrown on the same day.  Via Tommy Lasorda, at the time
"And it couldn't have happened to a tougher, more competitive guy," Lasorda said. "You look at Fernando and he has done everything in his career except a no-hitter. And now . . . this."
