SCP Auctions: The Steve Garvey Collection

Oh my goodness. Now here's a collection worthy of entry into a Dodger museum.  Sure, Steve Garvey wasn't quite the boy scout we all thought he was.  Still, he was the face of the organization for so many years... Years that experienced success and a winning tradition we strive for today. 

Just opened up at SCP Auctions is a huge collection of collectibles and memorabilia that comes directly from Steve Garvey.  There are 71 different lots, and it includes everything from his high school game worn Baseball cap to his 1974 MVP Award.

Check out a handful of what is available below.

As a kid I always imagined myself playing 1st base, just like Garvey.  Now, I can continue with my delusions of grandeur with the help of Steve Garvey's actual glove that he used in 1982- his final year with the Blue Crew.

This is one of the more epic awards a player can earn.  Below is Steve Garvey's 1974 NL MVP Award.  From the auction description:
1974 was a very special year for the young 25 year-old Steve Garvey. After splitting time with Bill Buckner at first base with the Dodgers in 1973, he claimed the job full time in Spring training of 1974. Playing in 156 games, Garvey had a .312 batting average with 200 hits, 21 home runs, and 111 RBI. This would be the first of six 200 hit and the five 100 RBI seasons.

Who wouldn't want this sitting on your mantle?  This is Garvey's 1981 World Series trophy.
