Legendary Auctions: Dodgers Vintage Memorabilia Part 2

Following up on my post from a couple of days, here is Part 2 of some Dodgers vintage memorabilia items available at Legendary Auctions.

The Bell Brand Dodgers cards are one of my favorite regional sets.  They produced cards from 1958 to 1962, and would insert them within packages of their potato chips.  Fortunately, they wrapped the cards in cellophane to protect them from damage.  As you can see in this auction below, here are three unopened cellophane packs with 1961 Bell Brand Dodgers cards inside.  Here is a Duke Snider, Wally Moon and Norm Larker cards.

In another auction are unopened packs from 1962 Bell Brand Dodgers cards of Don Drysdale and Sandy Koufax.  This time the cellophane wrapping wasn't enough to protect the Drysdale card below.  Some of chip oil leaked through and gave it a kind of brown patina. 

I've got a bunch of these cards in my collection, but have yet to complete a set from any year.  I also want to add that I actually like the brown staining on the cards.  I have several cards with this kind of patina.

You just can't beat a lot of vintage press photos of the Dodgers.  Featured here is a 37 photo lot that includes Carl Furillo, Pete Reiser, Branch Rickey, Eddie Stanky, Leo Durocher, Pee Wee Reese, Gil Hodges, Roy Campanella, and Jackie Robinson. Among non-Dodger notables are Red Schoendienst, Phil Rizzuto, and Jocko Conlan.

I have no idea who these fellow are.  Can you name any?
