eBay: A Kiss and Some Awards

There really is nothing better than vintage press photos. Here are a couple on eBay I thought worthy of highlighting.

Here is pitcher, Sal Maglie getting a wet one from Roy Campanella. This is written on the reverse.
"MAGLIE NO-HITS PHILS, 5-0, Brooklyn, N.Y.: Brooklyn Dodgers catcher Roy Campanella plants a big kiss on the cheek of pitcher Sal Maglie in the dressing room here Sept. 25, 1956 after the 39-year-old Giant cast-off hurled a no-hit, no-run game against the Phils to move the Brooks to within a half game of the league-leading Milwaukee Braves. The 5-0 win was the first no-hitter in Sal's long career, and he is the oldest hurler since Cy Young to pitch a hitless game."

After the flurry of recent Dodger awards this photo seems very appropriate.
"DODGERS' AWARD WINNERS-----Brooklyn, N.Y........ Brooklyn Dodger pitchers Don Drysdale, (left) and Don Newcombe display awards they received before today's opener at Ebbets Field. Drysdale received the "Harold C. Burr Award" as the outstanding Dodger rookie of 1956. Newcombe received the "Cy Young Award", as baseball's best pitcher last season and the "Most Valuable Player Award" of the National League."
