Some More Dodgers Memorabilia at Goldin Auctions - Drysdale, Erskine, Robinson and the 1963 World Series

Following up on yesterdays post featuring some vintage Dodger game-used headgear at Goldin Auctions, I now share some other interesting memorabilia items.

Below is a 1967 Don Drysdale game-used Dodger jersey.  Via the auction description:
During the waning days of the 1969 season, Dodgers bat boy Rich Raya approached his friend, Dodgers ace Don Drysdale in the team's locker room. After 14 years in the majors, the big righty was calling it quits: 209 wins, 3 World Series rings and a lifetime 2.95 ERA, all accomplished while wearing Dodger Blue. Over the years Raya had run many an errand for Drysdale, carting around his golf clubs, grabbing drinks from the lunch room, and this time it was he who asked for a favor: could he have his jersey? Drysdale grabbed one of his home white jerseys, quickly glanced around the clubhouse and silently handed it to Raya. This is that jersey.
