Blog Kiosk: 7/28/2020 - Dodgers Links & News - Some Odds and Ends

I just thought I'd share this photo that I saw on eBay. It's Don Drysdale (undated) leading a horse on a motorcycle. Below is what's written on the reverse:
Triumphant pitcher now can safely lead the costly jumper behind the bike, and thereby will save dozens of walking miles a week. Training process took about 15 minutes.
Photo above via an eBay listing. Below are more links to check out:

  • I don't know what to think of this. Over the Weekend Topps issued a Dr. Fauci card through their Topps Now program, and it sold a record 51,512 copies. Not only that, the card is reselling on eBay for crazy money -- like nearing $200 each. Wow! The hype train is working overtime! See the card on the right.
  • Via Liz Roscher at Yahoo Sports -- "Dr. Anthony Fauci: Marlins' outbreak puts MLB season in danger, but it doesn't need to stop."
“You just have to watch this. This could put it in danger," Fauci told Stephanopoulos. “I don't believe they need to stop, but we just need to follow this and see what happens with other teams on a day-by-day basis."
I don’t believe there’s going to be any panic, just yet. I think we understood there might be occasions like this, which is why we had our player pool as big as it is. My understanding, from talking to other teams, is that it’s supposed to be business as usual.
  • Wow! I didn't expect this to be the answer. As you'll recall, a balloon made its way to the Dodger Stadium field on Opening Day and nobody could understand how it got there. Now we know, via a tweet from Dodgers Nostalgia:

  • You gotta check this out! A Redditor recently created a model of Dodger Stadium made completely of paper. Check it out here.
  • Fantastic! The Cards That Never Were blog shares some fantasy 1980 Donruss cards, including a couple of cool Fernando Valenzuela cards and one of Ron Cey. Go here to check them out.
