A Couple of Vintage Dodgers Memorabilia Items at Legendary Auctions

Legendary just opened up their August auction and it includes a couple of notable Dodgers memorabilia items.  Check them out below.  Click on any pic to embiggen.

Here is a 1915 Fatima Turkish brand cigarettes advertising poster that features Hall of Fame Brooklyn Dodger Zach Wheat.  He, along with fellow National Leaguers Red Smith and Gavvy Cravat, forms the "The Strong Arm Squad of the National League".  As you may know, Fatima created a couple of cards sets posthumously known as T200 and T222 in 1913 and 1914, respectively.

This next item is really neat.  Below is a scorecard and ticket stub from the game in which Don Drysdale completed his Major League record 58 2/3 scoreless innings pitched.  The ticket stub is from June 8, 1968.  Drysdale gave up his first run in the 5th inning of this game against the Philadelphia Phillies after pitching shutouts in 6 consecutive games.  Check out the game box score here.
