Vintage Dodger Stadium Collectibles at Hake's Auction

This is the kind of stuff I love to chase after.  These aren't Baseball cards or game-used apparel.  Instead, all of the items from the Hake's auction that I highlight below are Dodgers-related memorabilia that were originally purchased by fans to commemorate the first day of the season.

I've personally never been to a Dodger Stadium Opening Day.  If I ever did I would roam the concession stands for pins just like the ones shown above.  Featured in the pic are seven different Dodger Stadium Opening Day buttons/pins.  (Auction Link Here)

From the top row, left to right: a 1988 pin and ribbon, 1989 pin and ribbon (pin celebrates their 1988 World Series Championship), 1995 Opening Week pin and ribbon, a 2000 pin and ribbon.  From the bottom row, left to right: a 1983 pin, a 1996 pin and 2001 pin.

This next group of collectibles all celebrate the recent opening of Dodger Stadium/Chavez Ravine Stadium in 1962.  In the above photo are lighters that features the stadium on one side and an image of ballplayer w/"Dedication - April 10, 1962" text on the other.  This date refers to the very first game played at the Stadium - a matchup between the Dodgers and Cincinnati Reds.

Furthermore, in the below pic you see a couple money clips - one for the Dodgers and the other for the Angels.
