Frank Howard's Ring, Jerry Doggett's Ring and Sandy's Batting Helmet and SCP

SCP's Summer Premier Auction is about to get underway, and there are some nice Dodger related items to gaze at.  The auction officially opens tomorrow.

The item below comes directly from the Helms Athletic Foundation/LA84 Collection.  Learn more about them here.  Below is a scarce early 20th century pocket mirror that celebrates the Brooklyn Base Ball teams home field, Ebbets Field.  It says,
"Ebbets Field, The Home of the Brooklyn Base Ball Club, is the Most Beautiful, Modern, Perfectly Appointed and Conveniently Located Base Ball Field in the World."
This item is rarely ever seen.  On the reverse is a mirror.  See the auction here.

Mr. Tiger Blood himself, Charlie Sheen, once owned this Sandy Koufax game-used batting helmet.  The helmet dates to the 1960's and is well worn.  Also, I'm totally fascinated by the "LA" emblem.  It looks like it has been haphazardly drawn on the helmet.  What's the deal with that?  There's got to be a story about it.  Anyway, check out the auction here.  It has been authenticated by Grey Flannel - a trusted game-used apparel authenticator.

All old-time Dodger fans remember Jerry Doggett.  He spent 32 years in the Dodger broadcast booth along side Vin Scully, and was just as recognizable.  Doggett would regularly call the middle three innings of the ballgame while Scully announced the first and last three innings.  He retired from broadcast in 1987; which ended to longest running broadcast partnership ever in baseball.  Featured here is his 1981 World Championship ring.

This next World Series championship ring once belonged to Frank Howard.  This is for the Dodgers 1963 championship over the Yankees.  Per the auction description:
In the World Series vs. the New York Yankees, Howard batted .300 to help the Dodgers beat the Yankees in four straight games.
