Legendary Auctions: A Couple of Dodgers Goodies

Vintage Baseball auctions never seem to stop.  I've been a little behind when it comes to writing about some of the more exciting Dodgers related offerings, but I plan on getting caught up over the next week or so.  With that said, check out a couple of great Dodgers items that were available through Legendary Auctions. 

Below is a circa 1907 Brooklyn Superbas team photo cabinet card.  As noted on the bottom right, it was taken in Jacksonville, Florida- likely during the Spring.  I love the miss-mash of uniform styles, the wooden stadium in the background and the bored looking kid waiting eagerly for that afternoons game to start.

Here is a player endorsed store model Baseball glove of Pee Wee Reese.   It was produced in 1940, and is very scarce.  Per the auction description:
We commonly regard Brooklyn shortstop Pee Wee Reese as a star of the post-war era, which he most certainly was. Pee Wee however hit the circuit in full stride in 1940. And though his early career was interrupted by a three-year military commitment, the community of National League baseball was in awe of this sensation from the start. Shortly into his rookie season, an obscure sporting goods concern, calling itself "Olympic," prevailed upon the phenom Reese to endorse one of their ball gloves.
