Dodgers Vintage Jersey's and Editorial Cartoon Artwork at Grey Flannel

Grey Flannel has their summer auction up and I couldn't help but notice a few items.  In fact, one is quite a gem.  Featured above is an original sports editorial cartoon drawn by Amadee Wohlschlaeger, and he does his best to skewer the Yankees and their owner George Steinbrenner for their play in 1981 (Auction Link Here).  As you surely know, the Dodgers defeated the Yankees in the World Series that season in six games.  This drawing originally appeared in an issue of The Sporting News, and as you can see it shows a muscular Dodgers arm knocking out the bewildered Yankees owner.
