1988 World Series Dodgers Memorabilia at Goldin Auctions

I'm having a World Series fever dream. Everywhere I look I see a Dodgers World Series. For instance, today marks the 63rd anniversary of Game 7 of the 1955 Fall Classic -- the Dodgers first championship ever. It's also the 59th anniversary of the Los Angeles Dodgers very first postseason victory on the west coast -- defeating the White sox, 3-1, in front of 92,234 fans at the Coliseum. Now, as I peruse through the Goldin Auctions catalog, I ran into some memorabilia from the Dodgers historic 1988 run.

As you know, it is the 30 anniversary of the Dodgers last championship in 1988, so these items currently available are very timely. Featured above and below are original lineup cards from the series that are a part of the Tommy Lasorda collection and come directly from Lasorda's agent.

At the very top are the lineup cards used by the Dodgers and A's for Game 1 of the 1988 World Series. (Auction Link)

Directly below are a grouping of 14 lineup cards that represent all six games of the NLCS series against the Mets and Game 2 from the World Series. (Auction Link)

Lastly, here is a game-used Dodgers road jersey worn by World Series hero Kirk Gibson during the 1988 season. (Auction Link)
