Collection: 1984 Union Oil Most Memorable Moments: Fernando Valenzuela

Here is another installment of 1984 Union Oil Most Memorable Moments. These sheets have beautiful artwork that capture the majesty of these great Dodger events. This time we highlight the incredible 1981 season of Fernando Valenzuela.

This young 20 year old Mexican phenom blazed through Los Angeles like a bull. He captured our hearts and minds, and spawned a sensation that would forever be known as Fernandomania. No one can ever equal the craziness that surrounded him. Not even the current Mannywood hoopla comes close to the psychosis evident in 1981. We were hooked. We cheered loudly. We went out of our minds.

Artwork is by Paul Kratter.

Check out the rest of the set here in my photoalbum.
