Some Vintage Dodger Headgear at Goldin Auctions - Hodges, Koufax, Puig and Kershaw

The start of the Baseball season is always one of the busiest times for sports collector auctions.  In the next couple of days I'll feature some Dodgers memorabilia available at Goldin Auctions.  After that, I'll share items from other noteworthy auction houses.

Goldin Auctions 2014 Opening Day auction has some great Dodger memorabilia to look at.  In this post I focus on some vintage Dodger headgear. 

Below is purported to be a game-used cap worn by Gil Hodges.

This next cap was worn by Sandy Koufax in 1965.  It has an interesting story behind it.  From the auction description:
In the waning days of the summer of '65, L.A. Angels batboy Bob Case (the two teams shared Dodger Stadium at the time) obtained this cap from the Dodgers ace himself. "Right out of his locker" states Case in the accompanying letter of provenance. Case kept the cap for over a decade before he traded it to a collector. Case thought so much of the cap that upon the collector's death he reacquired his former prized artifact.

If something more modern is more up your alley, then take a gander at the below game-used Yasiel Puig Dodgers cap

Forget the soft-caps, I want to see some protective headgear.  Take a look at this 2013 Clayton Kershaw batting helmet worn during the 2013 season.
