Gruber: You’ve got a very diverse, deep and robust audience that consumes live, active entertainment ferociously. Now, I don’t know how much more room there is – candidly.

  • Rich Mueller at Sports Collectors Daily compiles the, "Top Selling Sports Memorabilia of 2017," and it includes several Dodger-related rarities. There are two items related to Jackie Robinson, one about Sandy Koufax and the Norman Rockwell original study painting featuring a Dodger game.
  • Bean's Ballcard Blog makes a good point about that 1968 Nolan Ryan Gem Mint card that has been making the rounds. This is why I always say, "Buy the Card, Not the Holder."
