Auto Collection: Maury Wills Diamond King

Another Dodger no True Blue collector should be without is Maury Wills. His speed and guile were an important part of the team in the 60's. Heck, it's doubtful the Dodgers could have won as many games as they did without him.

Here is my 2005 Donruss Diamond Kings autographed card of him. It is a scarce variation that includes a unique green frame. It is numbered 7 out of 10.

Memory Lane: A Jackie Robinson Showing

It doesn't get much rarer than this.

It's one thing to have a unopened pack of Baseball cards from 1954, but to have one with a Jackie Robinson showing if quite another thing. Here, in Memory Lane's current auction is a 1954 Topps Baseball Penny Wax Pack graded by PSA. Unfortunately, it's a bit tough to see the Robinson.

Here is a video with the auction house introducing the unopened pack.
