Eric Karros Honored Last Night

With the Dodgers on a protracted downward slide,  I sometimes find it best to take my attention away for a moment.  For instance, why fret about the current 5 game losing streak?  It could only give you an ulcer, and besides there is nothing you can do about it right now anyway.  The way I see it, the Dodgers are going through a serious injury bug and are fortunate to be in the situation they are in. 

Heck, I can hear the worried screams of the Dodger faithful.  All I can tell ya is to calm down and take a deep breath.  So what if we lost our season-long grip on first place?  There is more than enough time to right the ship once our sails are at full mast.

That said, I figured it would be nice to take a brief look back at yesterday's festivities.  After all, it was Eric Karros bobblehead night.

Karros had his two sons with him, and made sure to say hello to Maury Will.  Better yet, Jon SooHoo put up some great historical photo of Eric Karros during his Dodgers career.  See them all here.  Below is probably my favorite one.

If the photos don't quite do it for ya, how about an exclusive interview with Eric by the Daily Bruin.  Tyler Drohan speaks with Karros about UCLA Baseball.

Collection: Ron Cey Great of the Game Autograph

Following up my previous Preacher Roe autographed Fleer cards from earlier this week (here and here), I bring to you a 2001 Fleer Greats of the Game autographed card of everyone's favorite thirdbaseman, Ron Cey. 

I love the simplicity of the card design.  It includes a nice photo against a off-white background and tasteful golden borders.  On top of that, there is more than enough room for an autograph below the photo. 

On a side note, I had previously featured several vintage comic Baseball postcards in my collection, but hadn't done so in awhile.  So, this weekend I'll be doing some more scanning in hopes of sharing more of them shortly.
